  1. Shred the cheese, seed and chop the chile pepper; combine.
  2. Slice the tomato; set aside.
  3. Shape the beef into 8 thin patties, put 1/4 of the cheese mixture in the centre of 4 of the patties; top with remaining patties and pinch to seal.
  4. Toast the bread.
  5. Heat oil in a frying pan and cook the hamburgers 6-8 minutes over medium heat for medium rare (I don't recommend cooking any ground meat to medium rare-- safety concerns-- but this is what the recipe states).
  6. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  7. Place cooked hamburgers on the toast and top with tomato slices and coriander, then another slice of toast.

Delicious Burger I love the hot chili pepper with the Jack Cheese. I did add raw sweet onions & Mushrooms to compliment the burger. I used the heel end of a loaf of French Bread. The Coriander enhaces the final taste Thanks Lennie for a super Saturday Night Burger

Lennie, I write this review as you are prisoned in the hospital. I told my guests about your situation and we all raised a glass to you for posting this spicy recipe! These burgers were delish. I grilled them medium well and served them on griled Italian bread. YUM!
