    Inside-out Cheeseburgers

    Ingredients
    1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
    1/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
    1 pound 90%-lean ground beef
    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    Cooking Instructions
    1. Preheat grill to medium-high or preheat the broiler.

    2. Combine Cheddar and Gruyere in a small bowl.

    3. Gently mix beef, Worcestershire, paprika and pepper in a large bowl, preferably with your hands, without overworking. Shape into 8 thin, 4-inch-wide patties. Mound 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture on each of 4 patties, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Cover each with one of the remaining patties. Crimp and seal the edges closed.

    4. To grill: Lightly oil the grill rack. Grill the stuffed patties over medium-high heat, about 4 minutes per side for medium-well. (Be sure not to press the burgers as they cook or they'll split open and the cheese will ooze out.) To broil: Cover a broiler pan with foil and coat with cooking spray. Broil the stuffed patties in the upper third of the oven, about 4 minutes per side for medium-well. In either case, let the burgers stand for 5 minutes before serving.

    Oh let me! let me! - I just learned this last week on Top Chef -

    All meat needs a resting period to get the meat to cool off slightly and allow the juices to dissipate back to where they belong. If you don't, then you run the risk of drying out the outer portion of the meat and when you cut into all the juices run out and not stay in. Makes the meat less flavorful

    Side note - You really don't want to burn your tongue on all that yummy cheese do you?

    I like to rest my meat before cooking (say at least 1/2 hour at room temp) and then after cooking (maybe 15 minutes or so if it will hold the heat that long - and if I can wait! )
    It does seem to help the flavor, letting it 'rest.'

    It is a type of swiss cheese. One of my absolute favorites on burgers.
