1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 ½ lbs. ground chuck (15-20% fat content), chilled
1 ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons Mt. Olive Jalapeno Slices, drained
½ teaspoon finely ground black pepper
4 four-inch hamburger buns, split and toasted
Vegetable oil


  1. In a large bowl, combine shredded cheese, ground chuck, salt, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, jalapenos and black pepper.
  2. Gently combine with hands until just mixed. Do not overwork.
  3. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions and form into patties.
  4. Heat a grill pan to medium high heat (375-425 degrees).
  5. When the pan is ready, use tongs to rub the pan with several layers of paper towels dipped in vegetable oil.
  6. Place the patties on the grill, cover, and cook undisturbed (do not press down on the patties) until grill marks appear on the bottom, about 3-4 minutes.
  7. Using a spatula, flip the patties, close the grill again and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.
  8. Remove to a clean plate and let sit in a warm place, or tent loosely with foil, for 5 minutes before serving.

It’s a different although good twist on cheese burger.

The only improvement I can see is to leave off the bun! Love Mt Olive Pickles jalapeños. One great burger!
