Stuffed Burgers


One of my favorite things to grill out is Stuffed Burgers! I just love Cheese burgers in general, I would

say it is one of my favorite foods! When I was pregnant I was constantly on the hunt for a good burger!

It is funny how it came about that I learned how to make Stuffed Burgers. I noticed them at Publix, pre-made, in the meat department. So I asked the meat guy, "do you squeeze that cheese inside with some sort of pastry icing thing." He looked at me like, so many people look at me, when I say such brilliant things, "Uh no...you just make a patty a little wider then normal put whatever you want inside and then make another patty and put it on top and squeeze the edges together."

Needless to say, I felt pretty blond at that moment. But, who cares...I was now on a mission to stuff burgers with everything you can think of. For the debut though, I chose the wrong time to do it. We were having a cookout with about 50 people. Not such a good idea! These burgers take longer to cook, so I would suggest doing this for just a few friends. I had a lot of hungry people waiting around for burgers. They were good though :)
