Stuffed Bacon Cheeseburgers

1/2 cup shredded Monterey jack
4 slices cooked bacon, chopped
1 pound ground chuck
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 large hamburger buns, split
Ketchup, mayonnaise, and mustard, for serving
Lettuce, sliced tomato, onion, and avocado, for serving

Combine the jack cheese and chopped bacon in a bowl. Put the beef in
another bowl and season with salt and pepper; use a rubber spatula to
mix it in. Flatten 1/4 of the meat mixture in the palm of your hand.
Squeeze together about a tablespoon of the cheese and bacon mixture
to make a little nugget; put it in the center of the ground beef.
Bring up the sides of the patty over the filling, making sure the
cheese is completely covered by the meat. Flatten slightly for a nice
patty shape. Set them side by side on a platter in the refrigerator
while preparing the grill.
Place a large grill pan on 2 burners over medium-high heat or preheat
an outdoor gas or charcoal barbecue and get it very hot. Brush the
grates with oil to keep the burgers from sticking. Grill the burgers
for 8 minutes per side for medium. (The USDA recommends cooking
ground beef until it is no longer pink and the internal temperature
is 160 degrees F.) Remove the burgers to a clean side plate while you
toast the buns.

Rub the grill rack with more oil and place the buns cut-side down,
toast for 1 minute. Serve the burgers with your favorite condiment
and any garnish you like, such as lettuce, sliced tomato, onion,
and/or avocado.
