I finally perfected this recipe to my satisfaction. They are tasty, thick, juicy, flavorful, cheesy & so full of flavor. I am so proud of this recipe & my husband wants me to make some to freeze where we can have them for a quick meal idea. I had a few failed attempts at trying to make this work & am glad to say I finally succeeded. Don't just take my word for it, try them for yourself. You will understand what I mean. You do not need an outdoor grill to get the great flavors to come together in these burgers. Shape them round or long, either will satisfy your taste buds.

Wow - now this is a cheeseburger recipe! The seasoning alone makes this a great burger recipe. But, stuffing feta and mozzarella inside is a creamy surprise. The cheddar and caramelized onions are the perfect toppings! I bet these would be great on the grill in the summer too. They may take a little time, but the burger is worth every minute.

How To Make 3 cheese stuffed ranch burgers

  • 2 packets of Ranch salad dressing and dip mix
    1
    For this recipe, you will need 2 packages of dry ranch seasoning packets. I used an off-brand variety with great results and flavor.
  • This combination of minced garlic, with chopped shallots, and grated onions, add just enough moisture to the panko and dehydrated onions, when combined with the ranch dressing and worcestershire sauce, just creates a PERFECT TASTING & awesome burger.
    2
    Mince the garlic, chop the shallot, and grate the small onion.
  • Feta and shredded mozzarella cheese combined
    3
    Combine the Feta with the shredded mozzarella.
  • Ground chuck in a large bowl
    4
    Add the ground chuck to a large bowl. Then add the eggs, panko, minced garlic, ranch seasoning, chopped shallots and grated onion, as well as the Worcestershire sauce & steak seasoning. Combine together but do not handle too much. Just enough so meat holds together.
  • The combination of FETA WITH MOZZARELLA, CREATES A UNIQUE flavor in these STUFFED burgers, one that you are not soon to forget. USING GROUND CHUCK IS THE PERFET BLEND OF LEAN & FAT RATIO, to create the most juciest burger.

    Shape the ground beef into balls of equal size. Should get 14 total. Then pat them out flat and make a well in the center of the first burger. Then fill well with feta and mozzarella mixture. Next, flatten out another burger, and place over the burger with the cheese filling. Then press edges of burger together to seal.
  • 4 burgers cooking in a large skillet
    6
    Place on a large platter till all are complete. Heat a heavy bottom skillet (I used a 16-inch skillet) over medium-high heat. Then add all of the burgers or as many as you can without overcrowding. Allow to cook about 4-5 minutes on bottom side.
  • 3 burgers cooking in oven with a slice of sharp cheddar cheese on top
    7
    Then place the skillet in preheated 350 degree F oven and continue to cook for another 4-5 minutes or until desired doneness. Then add a slice of sharp cheddar cheese to each burger and leave in oven for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes until cheese melts. Remove from oven and serve on toasted buns if desired with tomato slices, grilled onions, & flat pickles.
