The Fourth May Have Passed, But It Is Never Too Late for Stuffed Burgers
What is better than a delicious cheeseburger loaded with toppings? Try a burger stuffed with cheese and toppings! These recipes will make your next cook-out something special.
To stuff a burger, use a quarter of a pound of meat for each patty. Season the meat with salt and pepper. Make an indent in half of the patties with the back of a spoon to hold the fillings. Place the fillings on the indented burger and then top with another patty. Seal the edges by press them together around the edges to form a seal. Place on a hot grill and cook for five to six minutes each side. To keep your fillings from leaking out, do not overfill your burgers. You can make your burgers ahead and keep in the refrigerator for up to four hours before grilling.
Mushroom and Blue Cheese Stuffed Burgers
Make your filling by sautéing together sliced mushrooms and minced garlic in butter. Season with a dash of Worcestershire sauce, a dash of hot sauce, and salt and pepper. Place your mushroom filling in your burger and top with blue cheese crumbles before sealing. Serve on a toasted bun with steak sauce and grilled onions.
BBQ Cheddar Bacon Stuffed Burgers
Cook bacon until crisp, then cool and crumble into small pieces. To stuff your burger, brush the indented patty with barbecue sauce, then top with the bacon crumbles and shredded cheddar cheese. Seal your burger. If you are grilling for cheese-lovers, top with a slice of cheddar before removing from the grill.
Pizza Stuffed Burgers
Brush your indented patty with a layer of pizza sauce. Sprinkle on some dried oregano and top with slices of pepperoni, a few sliced black olives, and shredded mozzarella cheese. Seal your burger well before grilling. Serve on a bun toasted with garlic butter.
Southwestern Stuffed Burgers
Coat your indented patty with salsa. Layer chopped green chili, shredded cheddar and Monterey jack cheeses, and grilled onions. Seal well before grilling. Serve on a bun with chipotle mayonnaise.
Mediterranean Stuffed Burgers
Sprinkle the indented patty with lemon pepper seasoning. Fill your burger with crumbled feta cheese, chopped Greek olives, diced red onion, and sundried tomatoes. Serve on a toasted bun with creamy Italian dressing.
