Ever make your own Jucy Lucys?

Here's an example of how I've done it:

Start with some large diameter thin 85/15 beef patties (2 required for each Jucy Lucy). Add salt and pepper. Add sauted mushrooms and onions. Add shredded cheese (this was colby/jack). Seal the innards between the two burgers (seal them good so the cheese stays inside as it melts).

Grilling these on a normal grate is NOT recommended since they are a bit fragile when you first flip them. Try grilling them on a pizza mesh or similarly small-spaced-opening surface.

    Lots and lots of times. B)
    If you are ever in the area Matt's burgers are WAY better than the 5-8. I'm about 20 minutes from both of them.

    This one had Habanero jack and american cheese for a good ooz factor.

    Also never had a problem cooking them direct.

    It's been a long time since I have seen a post about Juicy Lucy's.

    Those look pretty dang good.

    Just a thought. If you use a little egg wash around the sides they will stick real good.
  • Outside of the Two Originals, The Blue Door Pub in St Paul also makes some amazing "Blucys". Also the Buffalo Tap in Savage makes some good Lucys as well
  • I'm 12 miles south of Matt's and
    I'm 11 miles south of a 5-8 Club

    I have yet to try the Jucy Lucy (Matt's) or the Juicy Lucy (5-8 Club). I'd hate to be disappointed after eating my own creations. :P
