1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese (OR Gouda or Asiago cheese)
1 pound 90%lean ground beef
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper

Preheat grill to medium-high, or preheat the broiler.
Combine Cheddar and Gruyere cheese in a small bowl.
Gently mix beef, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, and pepper in a large bowl, preferably with your hands, without overworking. Shape into 8 thin, 4-inch-wide patties. Mound 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture on 4 of the patties, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Cover each with one of the remaining patties. Crimp and seal the edges closed.

To grill:
Lightly oil the grill rack. Grill the stuffed patties over medium-high heat, about 4 minutes per side for medium-well. (Be sure not to press the burgers as they cook or they'll split open and the cheese will ooze out.)

To broil:
Cover a broiler pan with foil and coat with cooking spray. Broil the stuffed patties in the upper third of the oven, about 4 minutes per side for medium-well.
In either case, let the burgers stand for 5 minutes before serving.
