Ain't nothing Spanish about this bad boy. Minnesotans have been putting cheese inside a fried burger for decades, and have branched out from there. It's a Jucy Lucy, and if you've never been to Matt's in South Minneapolis you're doing it wrong.
I love a good surprise! I 'envelope-wrapped' the cheese with the serrano ham and stuck a toothpick in it, to hold together. It also made it easier to 'turn' the ham/cheese nugget in the pan, while frying! These were beautiful and I think I may 'surprise' my friends with one, and soon! Thanks for sharing, GailAnn!
This was great! I rolled the ham around the cheese, since it wasn't very clear how to wrap it. I ended up only using 2 of the wrapped cheese slices, and cutting them in half, since they were way too big. I was surprised that the burgers held together, they looked crumbly but worked out perfectly. I served with onion slices and salsa on top. For ZWT8
