Stuffed Hamburgers and Sweet Potato Fries

on June 11, 2014

A couple of years ago we purchased a stuffed burger maker because it was on sale and looked interesting.  What a purchase! This has become our favorite way to eat hamburgers.  Granted, it is not as easy as throwing a frozen patty on the grill or even making your own hamburger patty but they are infinitely better and well worth the effort!  Plus with the toppings all conveniently tucked inside the burger there is less mess and fewer toppings sliding off the bun… well, unless you add even more on top like guacamole, yum…   Add a side of sweet potato fries and some grilled veggies and you’ve got the makings of a great meal!

So what do you put inside a stuffed burger?  Mushrooms, onions, green chili, garlic, cheese, bacon, pineapple… anything you want!

If you don’t have a burger press, you can still make stuffed burgers, it is just more difficult to get uniform burgers.  To do it you make two patties about 5 inches in diameter indenting the center of the burger and leaving a rim around the patty about ¼ inch wide and ¼ deep.  Scoop filling into one side and place the remaining patty over the filled patty.  Seal the edges well and cook until burger is completely cooked through.

Here’s my recipe – it makes about 6 stuffed burgers
