Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef chuck
  • 4 1/2 -inch cubes pepper jack cheese (about 1 ounce total)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese (about 2 ounces)
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • Ketchup, mustard and/or mayonnaise, for spreading (optional)
  • Lettuce leaves, sliced tomato and/or sliced red onion, for topping
  • Pickles, for serving (optional)
Directions

Divide the beef into 4 equal portions. Press a cube of pepper jack into the center of each and shape the meat around the cheese; form into patties, about 4 inches wide and 3/4 inch thick. Season the patties with salt and pepper.

Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the patties and cook until browned on the bottom, about 4 minutes. Flip the patties and top each with a slice of cheddar; cook 4 to 5 more minutes.

Meanwhile, toast the hamburger buns and spread with ketchup, mustard and/or mayonnaise. Fill with the burgers and top with lettuce, tomato and/or red onion. Serve with pickles.
