Pepper Jack Stuffed Cheeseburgers

Every Sunday evening we get the family together by having a barbecue at our house.  It's a great time to share awesome food and catch up with the week's events.  My daughters who now live in different states take part in this tradition on Facetime, the marvels of technology!

This weekly dinner is great, but it does create a bit of a problem, what to cook!  I spend the day searching for something different or at the very least putting a new twist on our regular standards of steaks, kebobs, hot dogs, and burgers.

Last week I saw some yummy looking stuffed burgers on Pinterest.  I decided to put my own spin on the burger and my family loved it!

I used 80/20 ground chuck to make sure the thick patties hold together during grilling. I love garlic so I use a couple of teaspoons, and omit the salt because I feel the onion soup mix has enough salt in it.  Spices can be adjusted to taste. It's really simple, kids can help prepare it.  It goes great with oven baked crosscut seasoned potatoes found in the freezer section of the local supermarket. 

This recipe makes 8 good sized stuffed patties.

Ingredients:

3 lbs. ground ground chuck

1 envelope onion soup mix

2 tsps. garlic powder

1 tbls. worchestershire sauce

8 slices pepper jack cheese - quartered

8 slices cheddar cheese

Directions:

Mix first 4 ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.  Make sure soup mix, garlic powder, and worchestershire sauce are evenly mixed into the beef. 

Divide meat into 16 equal parts and roll each portion into a meatball.  Make the meatballs as equal in size as possible.

Quarter each slice of pepper jack cheese to make 8 stacks of quartered slices

 

Flatten meatballs into patties making it thinner in the center.  Press one stack of cheese into each of 8 patties.

 

Place the other patties over the patties with cheese and seal.  Pinch the seams together all the way around, make sure the patties are sealed well so that cheese doesn't seep out while grilling.

 

Wipe the grill with some oil to keep burgers from sticking.  Grill burgers about 10 minutes each side or until it's cooked the way you like.  Server on buns with desired condiments and sides.
