The Juicy Lucy

I was watching the travel channel and they featured a burger called the Juicy Lucy. We have been making our own version of this for years. We use a generous amount of blue cheese or cheddar, but swiss or pepper jack would be excellent as well.

2 slices bread
2 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 lbs ground meat (we use buffalo)
cheese of your choice in the amount of your choosing

Chop bread in a food processor or blender. Mix breadcrumbs, milk, salt and pepper together. Add meat and mix well. Divide meat into 16 patties. Place the desired amount of cheese in a pile in the center of one pattie and top with another pattie. Pinch edges to seal. Repeat until you have 8 burgers. Grill 4 minutes on each side or until done. Serve on buns with your favorite fixings! Goes great with homemade fries.
