I found one of those gadgets to make easy stuffed burgers at Kroger - they are really fun! If you can pick one up they really work well. I decided to turn a favorite appetizer of mine into a burger. Yummy!

Grill

Ingredients

1 lb
ground beef, 80/30
2 oz
cream cheese softened
4 oz
sharp cheddar cheese grated
1
pickled jalapeno, finely diced
4 slice
applewood smoked bacon, cooked
2 slice
tomato
4
lettuce leaves
onion slices
2 Tbsp
mayo
1 Tbsp
ranch seasoning
salt and pepper to taste

Step-By-Step

1In a small bowl mix cream cheese and shredded cheddar.
2Divide ground beef in half for each burger set one half aside. To create your stuffed burger take 1/3 of the portion and set aside for the top. Place the 2/3 portion in the burger form press with the burger press to create a "bowl". Fill with half of the cheese mixture and top with half of the jalapeno. Top with remaining 1/3 of ground beef and press making sure filling is completely covered. Repeat for other burger. Let rest in refrigerator covered with plastic wrap.
3Prepare grill and let burgers rest on the counter while grill is heating up. Salt and pepper both sides of burgers as desired. Cook for 6 minutes on each side.
4While burgers are cooking mix mayo and ranch seasoning in a small bowl.
5Assemble burger with your favorite veggies - I chose lettuce, tomato and onion. Spread ranch equally between burgers and top with bacon.
6Here is a picture of the gadget I found. It's "Good Cook" brand. I found it at Kroger it's a stuffed burger press.
