Outside-In Bacon Cheeseburgers

Four slices cooked bacon, chopped
About a pound and a half of ground beef
A couple healthy shakes of Worcestershire sauce (About a tablespoon)
Coarse salt and ground pepper, a healthy amount
Two hefty slices of cheddar, or sharp cheddar, or sharp white cheddar, crumbled
Buns, toppings, etc.

Combine beef with Worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper. On a foil or parchment lined surface, divide the beef into four equal portions and flatten. Put bacon and cheese in the center of each, and then form the patty into a ball around the filling. Work with it slowly and gently to cover the filling entirely, then gently squish it back into a patty shape. Grill over high heat about 5 minutes per side, prepare buns, and serve.

Takes about 25 minutes.
Difficulty: 3.
Serves four.
