This item just screams summer! Although, if your burger is yelling at you, it's probably time to get out of the sun...

Ingredients:
4 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
1/4 cup crushed pineapple packed in juice, drained
1 lb. raw extra-lean ground beef (4% fat or less)
3 tbsp. precooked real crumbled bacon (like the kind by Oscar Mayer)
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. each salt and black pepper

Directions:
In a medium bowl, thoroughly mix cheese wedges with crushed pineapple.

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!
