Recipe from: gailanng
The Spanish eat many types of meatballs and this is really a big meatball stuffed with serrano ham and Manchego cheese.
1 ½ pounds ground chuck
salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 manchego cheese, cubes cut 1 x ½ x ½-inch each
4 slices serrano ham — can substitute prosciutto
1 tablespoon olive oil
Preheat grill on high heat.
Lay out ground chuck in a single layer and season well with salt and pepper. Divide chuck into four portions.
Wrap each piece of Manchego in a 4-inch square piece of ham. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add each ham-and-cheese bundle and fry, turning, until ham is crisped and cheese is beginning to melt. Allow to cool slightly, fold meat around each bundle to form hamburgers about 1 inch thick.
Grill burgers for about 4 to 5 minutes a side or until just cooked through.
