Ingredients:
4 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese

In a large bowl, thoroughly mix all other ingredients. Evenly divide mixture into four portions.

Evenly divide one portion in half, and flatten each half into a thin patty. Place 1/4th of cheese mixture in the center of one patty. Top with the other patty, and squeeze edges to seal, forming one stuffed patty. Repeat to make 3 more stuffed patties.

Bring a grill pan (or large skillet) sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Cook patties for 4 - 8 minutes per side, until cooked to your preference. Enjoy!
