Fontina-Filled Burgers With Sun-Dried Tomatoes

14 cup fresh white breadcrumbs
14 cup drained sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil with herbs, minced (reserve oil)
1 beaten egg
12 teaspoon salt
14 teaspoon pepper
1 14 lbs lean ground beef
12 cup shredded Fontina cheese
4 large hamburger buns, toasted
tomatoes, onion, avocado, etc


Combine bread crumbs, tomatoes, 2 tablespoons of reserved oil, egg, salt and pepper. Add ground beef and gently mix with a fork just until ingredients are evenly blended. Divide meat into eight equal portions. Shape each portion into a 4-in. patty. In the center of four patties, make a shallow depression about 2-in. wide, place 1/4 of fontina cheese in depression. Top filled patties with remaining patties and press edges together to seal well. Cover airtight and chill for at least 20 minute or up to 24 hours. Cook 6-7 minutes on each side, turning only once. These can be barbecued or pan fried, just be sure to lightly grease whatever cooking surface you use.
