    My Juicy Lucy

    3 reviews

    Friends in Minnesota introduced me to the Juicy Lucy burger, a local favorite. Instead of putting the cheese on top, it gets stuffed inside, keeping the meat around the cheese nice and juicy. We love the meltiness of American cheese, but it works with any cheese you'd like. —Brigette Kutschma, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin
