Juicy Lucy – Part I

I watched a cooking show that featured this unique burger called the Juicy Lucy. Who invented it is in dispute, but the taste is not. It originated in South Minneapolis at either the 5-8 Club or Matt’s Bar. While watching the show it didn’t matter to me who invited it, it looked delicious. She I attempted to cook it.

The ingredients are:

1 lb ground beef (makes 3 burgers)
Cheddar & Provolone cheese

Cook on each side for 6-7 minutes. Don't press down on the burger (it will plump) and flip it once.

Enjoy the following video presentation:

What’s great about a burger is making it your way. Add the type of cheese you like. I like mixing two different types of cheese but you may only like one. The same goes for the toppings. You can add tomatoes, lettuce, avocado, mushrooms, etc. I find that with the juiciness of this burger – less is better.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment.

*To make this Atkins friendly just lose the bun add your favorite vegetable and a side salad.

Up next is Juicy Lucy Part II - my variation made with pork.
