What are Juicy Lucy burgers?

Juicy Lucy burgers are a burgers stuffed with cheese for a surprise filling when you take that first bite!

What kind of cheese should I use?

For best results, I recommend using sliced American cheese. It’s one of my favorite cheeses for burgers – it’s super smooth and melts beautifully. Instead of American cheese, use your favorite kind but keep in mind that some cheeses melt better than others.

Can I prepare the patties ahead of time?

Yes! Once the patties are formed and stuffed, refrigerate them for up to 24 hours before cooking.

Can I grill these burgers?

Absolutely! Make sure the cheese is really sealed inside the burgers before grilling. Here are all of my tips for how to grill burgers.

Tips!

  • Before cooking, pinch the edges of the burgers together to seal the cheese inside.
