This burger is definitely for a cheat day. This is similar to my Chorizo Cheese Burger with Guacamole, but twice the burger and oozing with cheese. This will satisfy all your burger cravings. You might want to have some extra napkins handy when you dive in, but great burgers are supposed to be messy right?
Here’s what you need:
*1 Ib ground beef; I used 80/20
*1/2 Ib Mexican chorizo; casings removed
*2 TBS Worcestershire sauce or more to taste
*2 tsp onion powder or more to taste
*2 tsp garlic powder or more to taste
*1/2 tsp.coarse salt or more to taste
In a large bowl, add all ingredients except for the hamburger buns.
Mix just until blended.
Shape into 6 equal portioned patties. Place two slices of cheese over 3 of the patties. If you want a smaller burger, then divide into 8 portions, but you might have to cut the cheese slices in half so they will fit onto the patties correctly.
Place another patty onto the cheese slices. Seal the edges together to completely enclose the cheese.
This prevents all of the cheese from oozing out during cooking.
Heat a large cast iron skillet on medium high heat. When pan is hot, place patties into the pan.
Turn the heat down to medium if pan starts getting too hot. Cook for about 5 minutes or until bottom of the patty is brown. Turn over and cook about 5 minutes more or until they are done to your liking.
Remove from the pan, tent with foil and let rest for 5 minutes. Place on a bun then top with your favorite hamburger toppings and serve.
