Jucy Lucy

We were watching Man v. Food the other night. They featured someplace, somewhere, that makes what is called a 'jucy lucy', no spelling error. Anyway, we made one last night and it was great.

Basically it's just a hamburger stuffed with American cheese, but since I hate American cheese, we used cheddar and I had chipotle cheddar in mine.

So, you take 2 patties (we thought 1/4 lb. each was way too big, so next time we'll go with a fifth or so), put A LOT of cheese stacked in the middle of one and sandwich them together. Toast your buns (hamburger buns, not tanning your own buns). We preferred grilled burgers, but didn't have time last night, so we fried them on the stove. Then you know, put whatever you want on top. It's pretty hot, so the kids might want to let it cool, but the cheese just oozes out. I couldn't get my mouth around it, so I'll make them flatter next time. Anyway, just a twist on a hamburger, but still pretty tasty.

My kids were pretty excited about eating cheese in a hamburger. Sneaky....
