Exceptionally Good Cheeseburgers

1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium egg, beaten
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 ounces pepper jack cheese
4 small hoagie rolls
Simple Savory Sofrito, optional topping

1. Mix together ground beef and all seasonings (everything but cheese and rolls) in a medium bowl. Divide into four equal parts and shape into mini-loaves, about 4-inches long, 2.5 inches wide and 1/2 inch thick. Set aside.

2. Heat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Pan fry burgers to personal preference: 3 to 4 minutes each side for medium rare, 5 to 6 minutes for medium. Top with cheese and cover skillet to melt, 1 minute. Serve immediately with toppings of choice.
