Stuffed Burgers

Cory and I love to watch the Food Network. While watching Diners, Drive-In's and Dives, we saw a diner that stuffed their burgers. Yummy! So we tried it, and it was fabulous. You will need to be creative with this recipe so you can fit it to your taste.

Stuffed Burgers

2 lbs 80-20 ground beef
Your favorite steak seasoning...we used Famous Dave's Burger and Steak seasoning
8 slices of your favorite cheese (we did Pepperjack and American)
Hamburger Buns
Your favorite toppings...lettuce, tomato, mustard, mayo, etc.

With using 2 lbs, we got out about 8 burgers. Season the meat in a bowl, then divide into 16 (or 1/8 lb) balls. Place the rounds between 2 pieces of wax paper and roll them flat with a rolling pin until you get them into the desired size..about 4 inches wide. Tear the cheese slices in to fourths. Take one patty, place the cheese on top, then top with another patty. Pinch the edges together to seal the cheese inside the meat. Preheat your BBQ grill to about med-medium high heat...about 350 and grill each patty for about 10 min each side or until done. Be sure to check your patties as they are cooking. There are different things that will effect the cooking hot your grill cooks, how done you like the burgers, how big the burgers are, so our cooking time is a guess based on what we did.
(I am sure that you could subsitute turkey or pork for the beef if you want to.)

Another thing we do, is season the burgers with a little Tabasco before grilling them, but that depends on if you like things with a little bit of a kick. Grilling your buns for just a minute also makes it awesome!

This looks amazing! We went to a neighborhood BBQ and they had "power burgers". I have no idea what all was in there. But I think I identified sauteed mushrooms and onion and cheese. Can't wait to try this out!
