I am a midwest girl who now lives in the northwest but I have to admit I had never heard of the Minnesota born Juicy (or Jucy) Lucy Burger until I was visiting in Utah!
The Juicy Lucy was born in a bar in Minneapolis. The burger is made by sandwiching slices of cheddar cheese between two patties of meat. The cheese melts as the burger cooks and it helps keep the burger really juicy! Thus the name!
Burgers are always on the menu during the summer and the Juicy Lucy is a fun one to serve at your next BBQ or cookout. You can find everything you need and more to make this amazing Juicy Lucy Burger at your local Albertsons or Safeway store. Their O Organics® and Open Nature® line of products exclusive to Albertsons and Safeway, provide you with everything you need for that cookout. Albertsons and Safeway believe that organic products should be available to everyone at a reasonable price and they have over 4,000 items in their line.
I used the Open Nature® premium grass-fed, free range, and natural beef that is vegetarian fed and free of antibiotics or added hormones. It makes the perfect Juicy Lucy burger!
The Juicy Lucy is made by forming two hamburger patties. I made mine big and used a total of 1/2 pound per burger but you can make them any size you want. Flatten your two patties between two sheets of wax paper with your hand or rolling pin.
I placed two slices of cheese (I used CoJack but you can use whatever kind of cheese you like), torn into pieces on top of one of the patties. The burgers are traditionally made with American cheese but I prefer cheddar.
Place the other patty on top and seal up the edges good so the cheese doesn’t escape out while you are grilling.
Season with salt and pepper and grill. Using a good quality ground beef makes for a better burger and less shrinkage and the Open Nature brand at Albertsons is perfect. It is a high quality meat at a reasonable price.
The Juicy Lucy is the perfect guest to invite to your next BBQ!
I buy my O Organics and Open Nature products at my local Safeway and Albertsons, and you can also find them at all Albertsons family grocery stores, including ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Shaw’s, Star Market, United Express, United and Carrs/Safeway.
Some of my other favorite summer BBQ recipes:
- 1 lb lean hamburger formed into four balls
- 4-8 slices cheddar cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2-4 buns
Form hamburger into round balls. I made four balls from 1 lb. hamburger, making 2 burgers but you can make them smaller and form 8, making 4 burgers.
Flatten balls between two pieces of wax paper with hand or rolling pin.
Tear cheese into four pieces and place 8 pieces of cheese onto one hamburger patty. Place second patty on top of cheese and seal hamburger closed around the edges. Repeat with second patty
.Grill. Serve on bun with lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard pickles and onion.
