What do you think of the word “oozy” in the title of today’s recipe? I think oozy describes these double cheese burger patties perfectly. I loved watching the cheese spill out of the burger when it was cut, but taking a bite of the cheese burger patty, and having the melted cheese spill into my mouth was even better!
I have to confess that I’m a burger lover. In my opinion, nothing can beat a homemade burger.

However, today I wanted to share a recipe for a good old fashion double cheese burger. Naturally I felt the need to add a surprise. Sandwiched in between the two burger patties I added a mixture of cheese and mayonnaise.
The process of making the double cheese burger patty is very easy. I simply divided the seasoned mince into two balls and then rolled each ball into a 1cm thick rectangle. One meat rectangle became the base to my burger patty and the other was going to be the lid. I then used a large cookie cutter to cut circles from each slab of meat.
Once the cheese filling was prepared I simply spooned the filling into the centre of each the base meat patties. The lid was added and I moulded the sides shut to trap the cheese filling.
