Cheddar-Stuffed Horseradish Burgers

Serves 4

When stuffing the burgers, make sure to seal them well so that the melting cheese won't run out onto the grill while they're cooking.

Ingredients: 
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons bottled horseradish
  • 3/4 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, cut into 1/4-inch cubes

Method: 

Ingredient Option: Use ground buffalo instead of ground beef.

In a medium bowl, thoroughly combine onion, horseradish, garlic, salt and pepper. Add the beef and lightly combine, taking care not to overwork the meat. With dampened hands, form the meat into 4 patties of even thickness. (These are fairly large patties; feel free to make 6 smaller patties if desired.) Make a large depression in the top of the patties, about 2 inches wide. Place a quarter of the cubed cheddar cheese in each depression and bring the meat over the cheese, enclosing it completely.

Place on a lined baking sheet, cover loosely with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, light the grill or preheat the broiler. Cook the burgers for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, until done to your liking.
