If you never had a Juicy Lucy before, It's basically a Cheeseburger, to the exception that the cheese is on the inside. You usually tend to see them with more interesting cheeses as opposed to the traditional American. But that's ultimately up to you. I like to think of it as a showcase of sorts. And with St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, I figured "Why not use a quality Irish Cheddar" It came out amazing. Don't get me wrong...Its A LOT of Burger, But It really is necessary to keep all that glorious cheese in. If you Downsize it, you risk Cheese Leakage! So, alter at your own risk! ;)

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I wasn't the biggest fan of Irish cheese ... until this burger! Now, it is going to be a staple in my fridge. The Worcestershire and the mustard, along with the cheese gave this burger so much flavor. Have a few napkins on hand when you bite into this one!

1 lb
ground beef (80/20 is best)
Irish cheddar
S & P (to taste)
Few dash(es)
worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp

Any
toppings desired
