A recipe for you! (My one and a half people who actually read my blog 😉 )
Cream Cheese Stuffed Cheese Burgers
When M and I first moved into our little house not quite on the prairie, we inherited a left behind grill, that was almost on its last leg. After a couple of years, the bottom finally rusted out and we decided to buy a new grill. We got a Weber, like this one:
So that night M wanted to grill, even though it was kinda cold and rainy out. And he came up with the following recipe.
You will need:
- Ground Beef (1 pound)
- Cream Cheese (I use the block so I can cut of nice little cubes)
- American Cheese slices (we prefer the white around our house)
- Worcestershire Sauce (Just a few shakes)
- And a tablespoon per pound of this:
First thing is to mix your hamburger, season, and sauce in a bowl, taking care to combine it all throughly. Then you take a small amount of the hamburger meat and form a thin patty. I use a cutting board so that I can work a little easier. Then cut a small cube of cream cheese from the block, and spread it in the middle of the thin burger patty. Then, make another thin burger patty and place in top of the 1st patty and cream cheese. Seal up the edges by smushing (super technical term there) the patties together, but don’t let the cheese come out the sides or top/bottom of the patties.
Repeat until you’ve used up all your hamburger.
Spread your charcoal evenly on the bottom of your grill. This ensure that the burgers cook evenly and some don’t get more done than others. Cook burgers for about 6 minutes per side, 12 minutes total, or until your desired level of done-ness. In the final few minutes, place your American cheese slices on top of your burgers (you know like how you make a cheese burger) so that the cheese gets nice and melt-y (another super technical term here on Misadventures). You can either toast your buns (the burger variety, naturally) on the grill or serve them up straight out of the bag, either way is cool with moi!
I usually get about 5 to 6 burgers depending on how big I make them from one pound of ground beef.
I hope you enjoy these if you have the desire to make them. They are super tasty, and none of the ingredients really over power the others.
