Can anyone tell me how to "stuff" a burger and then cook it? Several of them are "stuffed" recipes.

And thanks to Josie for posting it...what a great resource.

Another idea we did last night and my kids really liked it and dubbed them


Fry your ground beef w/ onions. When done, add american cheese and melt. Lay out a lo-carb tortilla (we like the larger 5-carb size) and spread w/ your favorite burger condiments like mayo, mustard, etc. Then spoon in the cheeseburger mix, lettuce, diced tomato (if desired), pickles, bacon bits...you get the idea...depending on how many carbs you are having and what you like.

We liked this better than trying to hang onto burgers that slip around in lettuce leaves.

When I was little, my grandmother used to take me to a restaurant called Mr. C's Hippopotamus. They served all kinds of hamburgers, but would probably have loved to add all these to their menu! My favorite back then was a Tropical Burger. It was made with rare hamburger (I don't do that anymore)
grilled onions and grilled bananas in some kind of wonderful sauce. Of course, I don't do the bananas anymore, either. <sigh>

Taken from my Home Made Simple Newsletter!

Hamburgers are one of the easiest foods to prepare when planning a cookout. But just because it's easy doesn't mean it has to be boring. You can make your hamburgers memorable by simply getting creative with the toppings. For a little inspiration, we compiled some not-so-ordinary ways to make an unforgettable burger. But first, every great hamburger needs a well-made patty. So here's a basic ground beef recipe to get you started.

Prelude to a Patty
This recipe will make eight hamburger patties. Increase the amounts to reflect your party size.

2 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 pounds ground beef
1/2 cup fine, dry bread crumbs

Preheat your grill on high heat and oil the grate. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, salt, and pepper. Place ground beef and bread crumbs into the mixture, and with your hands or a fork, mix until well blended. Form into eight patties, each about 3/4-inch thick. Place the patties on the grill and cook 7 to 9 minutes per side, or however long you desire.

Now the difference between a plain patty and a work of art is just a few creative toppings away. Look to these unique toppers to really beef up your burger.

Aloha Burger
Top this Big Kahuna with a pineapple slice, cooked bacon, and mozzarella cheese. You can even incorporate coconut shreds. Replace your standard bun with a Hawaiian sweet bread bun.

Buffalo Burger
Coat cooked patties with chicken wing sauce, top with blue cheese, and serve with celery on the side.

Fiesta Burger
Top this hamburger with all your favorite taco ingredients. Layer with cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, black olives, and tortilla chip crumbles.

Make your favorite sandwich into hamburger form by adding bacon, lettuce, and tomato. Spread well with mayo.

My Big Fat Greek Burger
Use feta cheese, black olives, tomatoes, and onions for the ultimate Greek experience.

Totally Vegged-Out Burger
Pile the patty high with your favorite cool veggies. Try cucumber slices, tomatoes, bean sprouts, and a creamy dill dressing. For a true vegetarian experience, replace the beef patty with a vegetarian patty.

Reuben Burger
Smother this burger with melted Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Thousand Island dressing. You can even substitute the bun with marble rye bread.

Rancher Burger
Corn, black beans, cilantro, melted cheddar, Monterey Jack cheese, and ranch dressing make this the burger of choice around the campfire.

N'awlins Burger
Sprinkle your patty with Cajun seasoning, and layer with jalapeno cheese, tomatoes, green onions, and chilies. Mix together 2 teaspoons of chili paste with a cup of mayonnaise to spread on the buns.

Mama Mia Burger
Make Mama proud by topping this patty with roma tomatoes, fresh basil, and provolone cheese. Spread garlic butter on the inside of the bun for extra kick.
It's me Rebecca!

The way I do it is to make two thin hamburger patties. Then I pile on whatever I want to stuff it with, say onions and cheese, then put the other patty on top and smash the edges closed all the way around. If you don't, then the cheese will leak out. Then you can either grill, bake, fry, or broil your patty as usual.

Another thing I do sometimes is mix up all the ingredients into the hamburger meat before making it into a patty.

AMAZING hamburger patty recipe

I just wanted to share a really tasty burger recipe that my mom invented (and I improved upon ). I don't have exact measurements because I just do it by eyeball, so you might have to experiment with this to get it to your liking.

1 lb ground beef
~1/3 cup cottage cheese (YES, cottage cheese!)
~2 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
a dash of Season All
a pinch of Oregano
(any other seasonings you would like)

Mix ingredients together and form into 4 patties. Cook however you would like. This recipe works great on the grill, in the broiler or even pan fried.

I will never make a burger without cottage cheese. It all melts away and you can't even see/taste it, but makes the burgers sooooooooo moist and juicy!! Try this recipe and you will NEVER go back!

We recently discovered that ground brisket makes DELICIOUS burgers! And it's very inexpensive. I grind mine up with my KitchenAid mixer with the meat grinder attachment.

It's about time to grill up some more burgers and try some of these different toppings too!

Our current fave burgers - stuffed bison burgers on the grill!

Take a pound of ground bison, divide into 4 equal pieces, shape each into a thin patty.

On half the patties, put about a tablespoon each of goat cheese and bacon bits.

Top with the other patties - pinch edges together well, then reshape into thick patties about 5" across. Spray with olive-oil spray, sprinkle with seasonings of your choice (DH likes just garlic salt, I like Cavender's Greek seasoning), repeat on other side, then chill about 20 minutes so they will hang together better - grill to your liking. We do 6 minutes per side over high heat on our gas grill.

I've also stuffed with shredded cheddar and diced Ortega chiles, feta cheese and chopped Kalamata olives, whatever will fit between the two patties!
It's easy to be miserable. Being happy takes more work. ~~from Ondine, the movie~~
