Summer of the Burger | Week 2

The way things have been looking lately, I will have to change the name of my blog to Vanilla Beef. Thanks to some recent yard sale finds, however, I am hoping to have some new DIY projects up soon. Hold tight!

In the meantime, let me introduce you to Juicy Lucy. She is a tasty little burger I found in my Food Network magazine. Instead of putting the cheese on top of the burger, you put it on the inside. Kinda like a present. But without the, "Is this going to fit me" feeling.

Spice up your burger however you want and follow the photo tutorial below:





*Editor's Note*Between steps 2 & 3, put your Lucy on the grill. It won't look like the burger in step 3 if you forget this important detail! Also, to avoid raw meat, like in the photo is step 4, make sure you cook your Lucy long enough!


  1. I recently saw this burger featured on the Travel Channels's Food Wars--They are from Minneapolis and the show featured two pubs that claim they are the one that invented the Juicy Lucy! We tried to make them, but they weren't nearly like the originals on the show! See here:
    Thanks for posting!! -Leslie

  2. That looks really delicious and will be part of our next burger night! (Also, Vanilla Beef sounds disgusting :))

  3. I'm lovin' the burgers! I love Vanilla Beef too! LOL!
