  • 1 1/2 pounds Braveheart Black Angus Burger 
  • 6 slices American cheese
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, finely chopped (or substitute 1 teaspoon garlic powder)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Canola cooking spray
  • 4 buns
  • Grill pan or cast iron pan (optional)


  1. Cut each cheese slice evenly into 4 squares; arrange in 4 stacks with 6 slices each.

  2. In a large mixing bowl combine ground beef, garlic, Worcestershire, salt and pepper; mix by hand.

  3. Form beef mixture into 8 thin patties on a large sheet pan.

  4. With your thumb, press an indented well in the center of 4 patties and put the portioned cheese in the wells.

  5. Encase the cheese with the remaining 4 patties, hand forming your burger to a uniform shape with sealed edges.

  6. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before grilling.

  7. Spray burgers with a light coat of cooking spray. Grill or pan sear over high heat 3 minutes per side.

  8. Transfer to the cool side of the grill or 375°F oven to finish cooking to an internal doneness of 160°F (5 to 8 minutes). Remove from the grill and rest at least 3 minutes for the cheese to set.
