Stuffed Cheeseburger:

  1. Mix the sausage meat with eggs and breadcrumbs until combined.
  2. Divide mixture into 8 balls. Stuff a piece of cheese in the centre of each ball. Flatten and shape into 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick patties.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to medium-high heat; grease the grate well.
  4. Grill burgers, turning once, for 6 to 8 minutes per side or until cooked through.
  5. Assemble burgers in buns with arugula and tomato slices.
  6. If serving fewer people, divide accordingly.
  7. Top burgers with mayonnaise and sundried tomato pesto, if desired.

Tips: Chill burgers for 1 hour for easier grilling.
