Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 lbs ground chuck
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 manchego cheese, cubes cut 1x1/2x1/2-inch each
  • 4 slices serrano ham (can sub prosciutto)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions

  1. Preheat grill on high heat.
  2. Lay out ground chuck in a single layer and season well with salt and pepper. Divide chuck into four portions.
  3. Wrap each piece of Manchego in a 4-inch square piece of ham. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add each ham-and-cheese bundle and fry, turning, until ham is crisped and cheese is beginning to melt. Allow to cool slightly, fold meat around each bundle to form hamburgers about 1 inch thick.
  4. Grill burgers for about 4 to 5 minutes a side or until just cooked through.
