Black Bean Jucy Lucy/Vegetarian Juicy Lucy Sandwich

As per wiki,"a Jucy Lucy or Juicy Lucy is a cheeseburger that has the cheese inside the meat patty in addition to on top. A piece of cheese is surrounded by raw meat and cooked until it melts, resulting in a molten core of cheese within the patty. This scalding hot cheese tends to gush out at the first bite, so servers frequently warn patrons to let the burger cool for a few minutes before consumption to avoid injury. In Lebanon, Roadster diner has also attempted its very own cheese-stuffed patty in which they call the "Cheese-At-Heart". Unlike the traditional Lucy, the patty is stuffed with Swiss cheese and topped with cheddar cheese, lettuce, and potato chips".

 Black bean Jucy Lucy Sandwich

Am running last week of blogging marathon with American sandwiches as theme. After an irresistible grilled cheese sandwich, i picked this Jucy lucy which is usually prepared with cheese stuffed meat patty. I prepared mine as a vegetarian Jucy lucy just by replacing the meat patty with a blackbean patty stuffed with cheddar cheese. This healthy,protein rich cheese burger came out absolutely fabulous and everyone at home enjoyed thoroughly as i even prepared my burger buns from the scratch. Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#50.
