Cheese-Stuffed Burgers Recipe

Cheese-Stuffed Burgers Recipe

Here's a sandwich that does regular burgers one better—with a surprise pocket of cheddar! "The beef patties contain additional popular toppings, including ketchup, mustard and onions," lists Janet Wood of Windham, New Hampshire. "Whenever I serve these, though, folks enjoy finding the melted cheese most."

  • 12 hamburger buns, split
