Cheese Stuffed Burgers

Original Post Date: January 13, 2020

This is a throw back to one of my first few posts on what was then my shiny new blog. Whenever hubby and I crave a really cheesy, meaty burger this is still one of our favorites.

If you are craving a really cheesy, simple burger, then this is the one to go to. I made this a few weeks ago and it is rather messy, and definitely for a cheat day, but it is oh so good. I’m mean how can it not be….look at all that cheesy goodness. So here’s how you can make it.

Cheese Stuffed Burgers

  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • onion powder to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbs Worcestershire or more
  • sliced cheddar cheese (or any other cheese you prefer
  • desired toppings and condiments
  • hamburger buns

In a large bowl, combine ground beef, onion powder, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Form into patties.

Place one or two slices of cheese on top of one of the patties. Place another patty on top of the cheese and seal the edges of beef around the cheese. This prevents the cheese of oozing out of the patties while cooking, all though, some of the cheese does seem to make an escape. Continue this with the rest of the patties.

In a large skillet,( I prefer to use a cast iron skillet, but that’s just my preference.) heat until pan is hot, add patties and cook about 5 to 10 minutes on each side. Take patties out of pan and cover loosely with foil and let them rest for about 5 minutes.

Place on desired hamburger buns and top with your favorite toppings.

Enjoy!

Cheese Stuffed Chorizo Burgers

This burger is definitely for a cheat day. This is similar to my Chorizo Cheese Burger with Guacamole, but twice the burger and oozing with cheese. This will satisfy all your burger cravings. You might want to have some extra napkins handy when you dive in, but great burgers are supposed to be messy right?

Here’s what you need:

*1 Ib ground beef; I used 80/20

*1/2 Ib Mexican chorizo; casings removed

*2 TBS Worcestershire sauce or more to taste

*2 tsp onion powder or more to taste

*2 tsp garlic powder or more to taste

*1/2 tsp.coarse salt or more to taste

*hamburger buns

In a large bowl, add all ingredients except for the hamburger buns.

Mix just until blended.

Shape into 6 equal portioned patties. Place two slices of cheese over 3 of the patties. If you want a smaller burger, then divide into 8 portions, but you might have to cut the cheese slices in half so they will fit onto the patties correctly.

Place another patty onto the cheese slices. Seal the edges together to completely enclose the cheese.

This prevents all of the cheese from oozing out during cooking.

Heat a large cast iron skillet on medium high heat. When pan is hot, place patties into the pan.

Turn the heat down to medium if pan starts getting too hot. Cook for about 5 minutes or until bottom of the patty is brown. Turn over and cook about 5 minutes more or until they are done to your liking.

Remove from the pan, tent with foil and let rest for 5 minutes. Place on a bun then top with your favorite hamburger toppings and serve.
