Cooking for 4 people



  • 1.5 lb. ground beef (preferably an 80/20 blend)
  • 1 small block cheddar cheese (cut into 4 1½-inch wide by ½-inch thick pieces)
  • kosher salt and ground black pepper
  • Cheddar Cheese Sauce (recipe follows)
  • 4 hamburger buns

Cheddar Cheese Sauce

  • 0.25 cup flour
  • 0.25 cup butter
  • 2 cup whole milk
  • 2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • kosher salt and ground black pepper, to taste

1 Food Prep

  • Form 1½ lb. of ground beef into 8 thin patties.

  • Then, cut your cheddar cheese into four 1 ½ inches wide by ½ inch thick pieces. Put 1 cut cheese block on top of half of your patties. Top each with another patty and crimp the edges to completely seal the cheese within the ground beef.
  • Season the patties liberally on both sides with kosher salt and ground black pepper.
  • Finally, get your ingredients ready for the cheddar cheese sauce.

2 Grill Prep

3 The Cook

  • In a skillet, melt ¼ cup of butter over medium heat.
  • Slowly add ¼ cup of flour. Stir to create a thick paste.
  • Add in 2 cups of whole milk.
  • Bring the mixture to a simmer, then slowly add in 2 cups of cheddar cheese and stir until completely melted.
  • Add kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste.
  • Burger Patties
  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.

  • Place the patties on the grill for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, until they reach an internal temp of 160˚F. (Be sure to test the meat temperature and not the cheese center).

  • Toast the buns on the cooler side of the grate for 2 to 3 minutes until toasted and warm.

  • Assemble the burgers, place patties on the bottom buns and top with the cheese sauce. Add the top bun and serve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Delicious I enjoy trying a great amount of recipes that Kingsford offers from other bbq’ers. This was one of the best and easiest that I’ve tried so far. You don’t need to be a bbq master to try and enjoy. Thanks for sharing.
