Inside-Out Cheeseburgers Recipe

After posting an article about loosing belly fat, you would wonder why in heaven I’m posting a cheeseburger recipe! Well, let me tell you guys, that this cheeseburger has only 250 calories, so here’s to a REAL happy meal!



Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
Rest Time: 5 mins
Total Time: 35 mins


  • 1/4 cup(s) cheese, cheddar, shredded
  • 1/4 cup(s) cheese, gruyere, shredded
  • 1 pounds beef, lean ground, 90% lean
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper, black ground


1. Preheat grill to medium-high or preheat the broiler.

2. Combine Cheddar and Gruyere in a small bowl.

3. Gently mix beef, Worcestershire, paprika and pepper in a large bowl, preferably with your hands, without overworking. Shape into 8 thin, 4-inch-wide patties. Mound 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture on each of 4 patties, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Cover each with one of the remaining patties. Crimp and seal the edges closed.
4. To grill: Lightly oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the stuffed patties over medium-high heat, about 4 minutes per side for medium-well. (Be sure not to press the burgers as they cook or they’ll split open and the cheese will ooze out.)

To broil:
 Cover a broiler pan with foil and coat with cooking spray. Broil the stuffed patties in the upper third of the oven, about 4 minutes per side for medium-well.
5. In either case, let the burgers stand for 5 minutes before serving.
