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
- In a large bowl, combine shredded cheese, ground chuck, salt, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, jalapenos and black pepper.
- Gently combine with hands until just mixed. Do not overwork.
- Divide mixture into 4 equal portions and form into patties.
- Heat a grill pan to medium high heat (375-425 degrees).
- When the pan is ready, use tongs to rub the pan with several layers of paper towels dipped in vegetable oil.
- 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.
- Using a spatula, flip the patties, close the grill again and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.
- 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.
Sounds delicious! Great recipe!
The only improvement I can see is to leave off the bun! Love Mt Olive Pickles jalapeños. One great burger!
