A note about serious food allergies

Two bars in south Minneapolis claim to be the inventors of the Juicy Lucy, or Jucy Lucy, depending on whose version you buy. Former President Obama even (unwittingly, perhaps) took sides on the matter when he stopped into one of the establishments for the signature burger, prompting the other bar to tweet him a personal invitation. We aren't getting involved in any bar wars here; we've got our own version with goat cheese, arugula, and tomato jam that's juicy (pun intended) and delicious. Now if any former Presidents want to order any meal kits…

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using ground pork, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 3 and 4, cooking until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side.

  • If using ground turkey, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 3 and 4, cooking until turkey reaches minimum internal temperature, 6-8 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Roast the Fries

    Cut potatoes into 1/2" sticks and pat dry.

    Place on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and 1/4 tsp. salt. Spread into a single layer.

    Roast in hot oven until tender and browned, 25-30 minutes, flipping once halfway through.

    Season roasted fries with a pinch of salt.

    While fries roast, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Prepare Cheese Mixture and Make Tomato Jam

    In a mixing bowl, combine softened cream cheese and softened goat cheese (breaking up if needed).

    Coarsely chop tomatoes.

    Bring a small pot with tomatoes, vinegar, sugar, 2 Tbsp. water, and 1/4 tsp. salt to a simmer over medium-high heat.

    Once simmering, stir often until liquid has mostly evaporated and tomatoes are softened, 4-6 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Cover and set aside.

  3. 3

    Form the Patties

    Combine ground beef and a pinch of salt and pepper in another mixing bowl. Form mixture into four equally-sized patties.

    Top two patties evenly with cheese mixture. Place remaining patties on cheese-topped patties and seal edges by pinching lightly. A tight seal will help keep the cheese within the patties while cooking.

  4. 4

    Cook the Burgers

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.

    Add stuffed patties to hot, dry pan. Cook until browned and burgers reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side, covering pan once patties are flipped.

    Cheese may leak from burgers. Don't worry, they're still delicious! Remove from burner. Transfer burgers to a plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  5. 5

    Toast Buns and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook burgers to medium-high heat. Add buns to hot, dry pan, cut-side down. Toast until golden brown, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping bottom bun with tomato jam, patty, arugula, and top bun. Drizzle honey mustard over fries or serve on the side for dipping. Bon appétit!
