Recipe from: Susan Parenti
1 ½ pounds ground beef, 80% lean
2 ounces Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeño peppers, thinly sliced
salt and pepper, if desired
4 hamburger buns, split
4 lettuce leaves
4 slices tomato
Divide ground beef into 8 equal portions; shape each into 4-inch diameter patties. Place equal amount of cheese in center of 4 patties. Top with remaining 4 patties; press edges together to seal securely. Place patties on grid over medium coals (see notes). Grill 10 to 12 minutes or to desired doneness, turning once. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Toast buns on grill 1 minute, if desired. Arrange 1 lettuce leaf on each bun bottom; top each with 1 burger and 1 tomato slice. Cover with bun tops.
Two ounces Monterey Jack cheese and ¼ cup canned chopped green chilies, drained, may be substituted for Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeño peppers.
