            I am assuming the "holes in the burger question" is referencing chef Masa's cast iron burger maiden that he invented, that skewers with hot spikes as it cooks. But that is different than poking holes and cooking it regularly.

                Cheese IN the burger? That's disgusting. Unless you cook it to hockey puck consistency, with every bite, you're going to be looking at cheese and meat blood. Gag.

                                                for the soggy buns gang:
                                                - toast the inside of the buns until golden in your pan using the fat rendered after cooking the patty (lower the heat!!)
                                                - meanwhile your meat is resting so it's going to retain its juices better (no effort!)
                                                - put your lettuce and/or onions between the bread and the meat when you build it (minimal effort)

                                                          I cook sous vide a lot, and have not found any advantage to cooking a burger sous vide. I get better results on my outdoor grill -- preferably charcoal, but if I'm feeling lazy, my gas grill is still better than sous vide and sear. Just my own subjective observations.

I will say, "What's your favorite vegetarian burger?"; the answer is "NONE". Veg patties aren't burgers. They're sandwiches. God Bless. Don't go calling it a burger.
