Learn how to make stuffed burgers, this is a new way to join an ordinary hamburger.

During the summer we all love to grill. Did you know you can turn an ordinary hamburger into something much, much, more? A stuffed burger is so easy to make, you can stuff the burger in so many ways. You can stuff it simply with some grated cheddar cheese, or you can stuff it with something exotic like a cream cheese and jalapeno peppers.

You might wonder how to make these new burgers, but it isn’t difficult at all. I like to use ground chuck to make these stuffed hamburgers. I season my ground meat with a hamburger seasoning like a smokey brown sugar seasoning, or sometimes I add some simple salt and pepper. I always add a shot of Worcestershire sauce to make this grilled delight more flavorful.

What should you use to stuff the burger? I have used Cheddar cheese, Swiss cheese, or even a simple blue cheese. If you didn’t want to use cheese you could add some grilled vegetables or even some barbeque sauce.

    We love stuffed burgers! Yours look amazing…ours never turn out that pretty but they sure taste good. I like caramelized onions, mushrooms and swiss; Steve likes bacon – lots of it. That’s probably why ours don’t look like yours…we fill then too full! Great post!!!!

    I like burgers with the ingredients inside them – not necessarily stuffed but all mixed together. Right now I’m on a portabella and smoked Gouda kick
