STEP 3: 
Grill
Heat a grill or grill pan to medium high heat. Grill the burgers about 5 to 8 minutes on each side or until no longer pink in center. Burgers are done when they feel firm to the touch and a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F.

STEP 2: 
Shape
Form 4 burgers and, with your thumb, make a pocket in the center of each burger. Insert a chunk of mozzarella into the pocket, then shape the burgers to enclose the cheese. Chill burgers 10 to 15 minutes.
TIP Show/Hide
Chilling before grilling helps to firm-up the meat and cheese so the cheese doesn’t melt before the meat is cooked through.
