The cheese-stuffed burger

Next time your family’s hungry for cheeseburgers, try this. Make thin patties and sandwich the cheese between them, so it melts into the meat. Good!

Tender onions go beautifully on top — and Hunt’s tomato catsup. It’s the catsup with the old-fashioned kettle-simmered flavor, made as only Hunt’s knows how.

PS: These cheeseburgers are also sometimes known as Juicy Lucy or Jucy Lucy burgers.
