    In large bowl, mix beef, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Shape mixture into 8 patties, 4 1/2 inches in diameter and 1/4 inch thick. Press 1/4 cup of the cheese into a ball with hands; press flat into 3 1/2-inch-diameter patty. Repeat with remaining cheese. Place cheese patties on top of 4 beef patties; top with remaining beef patties. Pinch edges together to seal.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Variation: Try 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar and 1/2 cup mozzarella; or use 1 cup pizza cheese blend.
  • Tip 2
    Tip: The melted cheese inside the burgers can be hot, so it is good to give your guests a warning before they take a big bite.
