Why put the cheese on top of the burger when half of it just melts off -- instead, form the burger around the cheese so you can char the meat and safeguard the more delicate flavors. Use any mixture of hard or semihard cheeses -- Emmentaler and Gouda or Asiago and Parmigiano-Reggiano also pair well.
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup shredded gruyere cheese
1 pound 90%-lean ground beef
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Tip: To oil a grill rack: Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill).
Inside-Out Cheeseburgers Recipe at
Preheat grill to medium-high or preheat the broiler.

Combine cheddar and Gruyere in a small bowl.

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.

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.

In either case, let the burgers stand for 5 minutes before serving.
