Stuffed Cheesy Burgers
Summertime for many of us is backyard BBQ time. These stuffed burgers will add flare to that meal. The cheese combination & stuffing goodies is a personal choice. So be creative & let your imagination go wild.

For two meal sized patties

1 pound ground beef divided into four equal parts
Two white or brown mushrooms diced
1/3 cup cream cheese softened
1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Pinch of salt & pepper

Combine the cheese’s & other ingredients in a bowl & mix well.

Form each piece of ground beef into a very thin round patty. They will be very big around. Place half the cheese mixture in the middle & lay the other patty on top & press the outer
edges to seal & form into a round patty.

To grill, sear the outside of the patty on direct heat for one to two minutes just enough to brown the outside. Then finish indirect until the center of the patty presses firmly. About 5 to 6 minutes. You can also do these on the stovetop in a pan & finish in the oven on 375 degrees

I serve these open-face on a toasted bun with shredded lettuce & chopped tomatoes.
