This is a recipe adaptation of the original Jucy Lucy served by Matt's Bar in Minneapolis, MN. The cheese is sealed in the middle of the burger so watch out for the molten surprise in the middle.

  • 2 slices white sandwich bread torn into pieces
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef (85% lean)
  • 4 slices american cheese


  • 1
    Mash bread, milk, garlic powder, salt and pepper in large bowl until smooth. Add ground beef and knead gently until combined.
  • 2
    Divide burger mixture into 4 equal amounts. Divide each in half so you have 8 equally sized chunks.
  • 3
    Form 8 burger patties. Fold cheese slices into quarters and place between 2 patties to form each burger. Be sure to completely seal the cheese between the burger patties or you will have a blow out.
  • 4
    Grill burgers over medium heat until cooked through, about 6 to 8 minutes per side. Remove from grill, cover with foil and wait 5 minutes before serving.
