“I was walking down the street the other day, and someone threw cheese in my face!
I thought, ‘Very mature’.”
I’ve made Cheese-Stuffed Burgers before like these here and the Mushroom-Bacon Stuffed Cheeseburgers here. Today’s recipe is by far the easiest with minimal ingredients, but maximum flavor. They are definitely my favorite of the bunch. I liked the big ooze from the stacked sliced cheese, but blue cheese crumbles also make a fabulous stuffing (I didn’t take a photo of those).
1 1/2 pounds (680g) lean ground beef
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
4 cheddar or American cheese slices, each slice quartered and the quarters stacked or 32g blue cheese crumbles
4 hamburger buns
1. Combine beef with salt and pepper. Divide into 8 equal portions.
2. Shape each beef portion into a thin patty.
3. Top half of the patties with a stack of cheese. Top with the second patty. Seal the edges well.
4. Place burgers on a preheated grill and cook to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium.

This advice loaded tune is pretty depressing. The catchy doo-wopness is deceptively cheerful until you dig into the lyrics.
The last lines of the song really gripped me since I’d like to think that someday I’ll get to say hello to my long gone mother.
“Don’t be frightened when it’s time to meet your maker
Cuz the ones who wrote the books, they could be fakers
None of us will know, til he’s knocking on the door
So greet him with a smile, and say hi to my mom.”
