4. Place a slice of mozzarella cheese in the center of each part.

Divide the mixture into four equal parts. Place a slice of mozzarella cheese in the center of each part. Take one part of the mixture and form it into a patty, making sure to wrap the cheese in the center. Repeat this process with the remaining parts of the mixture.
