Directions

  1. Combine the 1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese, ripe olives (1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp) and hot sauce. Shape the cheese/olive mixture into 6 balls. Set aside.
  2. Combine the ground chuck, onion, salt, and pepper. Stir well and shape into 12 patties.
  3. Place a cheese ball in the center of 6 patties; flatten the cheese balls slightly. Top with the remaining 6 patties, pressing the edges to seal. Make sure you seal these well.
  4. Cook, covered with the grill lid, over medium-hot coals (350 to 400 degrees) for 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until done. During the last 2 minutes of cooking, place a slice of Monterey Jack cheese on each patty. Enjoy!
