Growing up, I remember watching my father making burgers from scratch; it was one of his favourite things to make (my dad loves to cook!). I’d watch him eagerly over the counter as he added his spices and packed patties between both hands. I admired then, as I still do now, his passion for cooking. For this Father’s day, we want to show you how to make a dish your dad is sure to love.

How to:

Preheat your grill or BBQ to 350

Coat the grill or BBQ with extra virgin olive oil

Pack patties to about 4 ounces each

Make a small opening in the meat and place 1 cube of marbled cheddar cheese in the centre

Cover the opening and place the burgers on the grill or BBQ to sear

Sear burgers on each side for two minutes

Lower heat and let burgers cook through for 10 minutes (if you want them medium)

Turn the grill off and let burgers sit for a few minutes to keep the juices

Voila!

And, if your dad is anything like mine, he loves his cognac; we paired this delicious gourmet burger with 2 ounces of Remy 1738 over a few rocks to make him the perfect Father’s Day meal!

Happy Father’s Day to all your dads!
