How to cook burger Juicy Lucy?

Juicy Lucy is a classic of American cuisine. It would seem that you can still come up with a loaf, sauce, minced meat… The peculiarity of this burger is that there is melted cheese inside the beef patty. A simple burger recipe! We take ground beef for our burger, divide it into parts, make small cutlets, it is convenient to make in a round metal shape. We put a layer of meat, cheese, and again a layer of meat. We close the edges and the delicious cutlet is ready. Next, we collect the burger and dig into this yummy! I think I’ll go make another one!
