Italian Hamburger

I love grilling season and Italian food so this burger combines the two in a most tasty way.  I went with the Juicy Lucy idea but with an Italian twist - would this mean it should be called a lucy succosa?  Um, no.  But it did have Fontina cheese oozing out.

Italian Hamburger

1# ground beef

1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
3 slices Fontina cheese

In a medium-sized bowl, crumble the ground beef.  Add the seasonings on top and fold in completely.  Shape into patties.  Make an indent and add cheese in the middle.  Cover the cheese completely and cook on the grill or in a pan.
