  • 1 1/2 Pound ground beef
  • 1/2 Cup finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 Ounces low-moisture mozzarella, diced finely
  • 6 large basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil


In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, sun-dried tomatoes, vinegar, and salt. Mix the ingredients together with your hands and form into 6 equal-sized balls.

In a small bowl, toss together the mozzarella and basil. Make an indentation in each ball and press in some of the mozzarella-basil mixture. Seal the mozzarella in and press to form patties about 1-inch thick.

Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the patties and cook until cooked through and the cheese inside is melted, about 8-10 minutes. To check if the cheese has melted inside, stick a toothpick into the center; if the cheese has melted it will stick to the toothpick. Serve with the homemade ketchup on a bun or with a salad.

The trick to making successfully stuffed burgers is to make two very thin patties out of high quality ground meat, then place your stuffing on one patty, top it with the other patty, and seal it closed. If formed right, and grilled well, you will have delicious stuffed burgers worthy of envy.

To make a stuffed burger, you need ground meat that isn't too lean (80 percent lean is ideal) and whatever stuffing ingredients you would like, from bacon and cheese to pizza toppings to cheese and jalapeno. An outdoor or indoor grill and a quality spatula round out the list.

Stuffed Burgers with Pickled Shallots

To make the pickled shallots, in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, add water, vinegar, sugar, and salt and bring to a boil. Stir until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat. Add shallots, let cool. Transfer to a glass or plastic container and refrigerate, for at least 4 hours.

To make the burgers, in a bowl, combine beef, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.

Divide beef into 4 portions. Split each portion in half and flatten to 1/2” thickness. Place a piece of cheese in center of patty. Top with remaining half portion, seal edges by pinching with fingers and press an indent into center of burger.

Preheat a grill pan or frying pan over medium-high heat. Season burgers with salt and pepper and add to pan. Cook on first side until meat has formed a crust, 5-7 minutes. Turn over and cook on second side until desired doneness, 128° for medium-rare, 5-7 minutes. Transfer to plate to rest.

Slather buns with desired condiments. Add arugula, burger, tomatoes, drained pickled shallots, and remaining top bun.

Air Fryer Stuffed Hamburgers Recipe

Air Fryers have changed the game for the better! I haven’t turned by stove on in a while! Air Fryers have made cooking so much easier and healthier! Not to mention, the clean up is extremely easy. Thanks to the nonstick surface of the cooking chamber. I did not think I could love this machine any more. Then, I made hamburgers in it! Oh my goodness! These burgers cooked in under 15 minutes. They were extremely juicy! I just had to share my recipe with you!

First things first. I am not a “Salt n Pepper” burger kind of chick. You know how some folks just form the meat into a patty and sprinkle salt and pepper on each side. Not I! Not knocking those that do, but I need a little extra flavor! You can always just use my air frying timing and your own seasoning blend. I do HIGHLY recommend trying my recipe as is. It is truly delicious! In my unbiased opinion of course. Ha!

The burgers were perfect as is. But, I just had to be extra and add cheese! Cheese makes nearly everything better! And these burgers are no different. Just add a cube of your favorite cheese to the center of the meat while forming each patty. As it air fries, the cheese will melt into gooey goodness!

I know it looks like butter. It’s cheese though!

My recipe yields 7-10 burgers depending on the size you make them. Keep in mind that they will shrink a little during the air frying. So, you may want to overcompensate for the size while forming your patties.

There are many different brands of air fryers. So, you make have to adjust my cooking times to fit your unit and to achieve the level of doneness you prefer. This recipe is way to easy and flavor not to try! Look at that cheese!

Sounds like a win-win to me.

Sweet and Spicy Cowboy Stuffed Burger Recipes

Here in Minneapolis, we have a great foodie culture. To many we are known as the home to the Juicy Lucy. What is a Juicy Lucy? It’s one of the best stuffed burger recipes!

That’s where this Sweet and Spicy Cowboy stuffed burger recipes comes in. Be prepared to drool folks this recipe is one of my best yet, and it’s going to make you need a bib!

When I was growing up, summer time always meant that my dad would pull out the grill. There was just always something about grilling that gave the food so much added flavor.

Well that was unless my dad made some of his famous “chicken.” I use that term loosely because when my dad was younger, he was known for getting distracted and we tended to have chicken a la burnt to a crisp. We still give him crap today about how he used to torch the chicken all the day.

Thankfully after many years of burnt chicken, my dad hasn’t burnt food on the grill in a long time.

So you won’t suffer the same fate as my dad’s chicken, I am going to give you some really good tips to make the perfect stuffed burger! The first step to the perfect stuffed burger is to get a good hamburger press!

This makes sure that the patties are both the same thickness and will cook at the same rate. We grabbed this Weston hamburger press. I love it because it’s metal, and makes it more durable.

Plus, you can set how thick you want the burgers. We made each of our patties a little less than a 1/4 inch thick. That way the burgers would cook, and your stuffed burger wouldn’t be so big you couldn’t get it in your mouth.

Our family loves playing with flavors when making our stuffed burgers.

The second sure fire tip for the perfect hamburger is to preheat your grill. You want that baby smoking hot! Heat it up to about 500 degrees and then that’s when you put the burgers on! Not before.

You should cook the burger about 3-4 minutes on each side, DO NOT PRESS THEM, and then flip them once. On my grill, it took about 5-7 minutes each side, but that’s because my grill isn’t consistent. You want to give the stuffed burger enough time to cook through the meat and to melt the cheese on the inside. Now onto the recipe!

Sweet and Spicy Cowboy Stuffed Burger

  • 2 pounds of Ground Beef
  • 1-2 T Worcestshire Sauce
  • 1/2 T Garlic Powder
  • 1 t Seasoning Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • Cheddar or Spicy Jack Cheese
  • 1 Pound Bacon

To make stuffed burgers, its best to pre-mix all the ingredients for the stuffing in a small bowl. Then after mixing the ingredients for your patty in a separate bowl, form your patties and then use a clean glass to shape a small indent. Fill the indent with the stuffing and cover with more of the ground meat mixture.

Stuffed hamburgers can take a little longer to cook than normal burgers. If your pellet grill is set to 350°F then it should take about 25 minutes to grill.

Note: It is recommended to use Wisconsin Hickory Charcoal Blend Pellets with this recipe.

Stuffing Stuffed Burgers

Stuffing Stuffed Burgers allow you to eat stuffing all year round! It&rsquos also a great way to use up leftover stuffing so it doesn&rsquot go to waste! One of our favorite ways to enjoy stuffing!

After Thanksgiving this year, I&rsquove been on a quest to figure out ways to use up leftovers.

Leftover Turkey, Leftover Cranberry Sauce and Leftover Mashed Potatoes have all made the list. And all the recipes have turned out quite well.

Now it&rsquos time to think of ways to use up leftover Stuffing.

If you&rsquove not seen it already, this post called Turkey, Broccoli & Stuffing Casserole is a delicious and simple way to use up leftovers.

However, having more than one option never hurts.

And thus that brings us to another tasty way to use up leftover Stuffing.

The flavor of the stuffing doesn&rsquot actually matter. It also doesn&rsquot matter how it&rsquos made.

You can use store bought stuffing or leftover wild rice stuffing, your choice. But just know that you can use leftovers or fresh stuffing if you plan on making this year round.

Now there are some people who love stuffing. LOVE it. And if you are one of those people, then you really shouldn&rsquot deny yourself the opportunity to enjoy it more than once a year.

And these Stuffing Stuffed Burgers are a great way to enjoy stuffing all year round!

The first time we made these we invited some friends over for dinner. A very normal occurrence for us as I prefer to try out new recipes on dinner guests.

I tend to get a good reaction on what they think of the dish by whether or not they finish what is on their plate.

Other good ways to tell if the meal was good (and they aren&rsquot lying) is if they take seconds and of course by how long it takes them to choke down the meal.

And don&rsquot forget about the unconscious sign of pushing food around the plate with their fork absentmindedly.

All of these tend to tell you whether the meal or the item, is good or not.

Dinner guests always compliment the meal, thanks in part to the good manners their mothers have taught them, but a compliment doesn&rsquot really tell you if they liked it. It&rsquos just the kind thing to say.

How they eat their meal, will tell you everything.

And so with this meal, we invited some friends over. Tested it out on them.

Before I even had a chance to try the food (I was taking care of cutting up kid bites) our dinner guests began raving about how good it was.

Not so little secret, apparently the husband is a HUGE fan of stuffing. Lucky me.

We downed the entire meal that night at the table and there was nothing leftover.

We all agreed that the meal was a success.

HOWEVER& my husband and I were talking&hellipwe both agreed that it was lacking something.

In the end we decided it was onions.

And so, just a few days later, I made it again but added cream of onion soup (no one wants crunchy onions in their hamburger). And that was the key to the perfect Stuffing Stuffed Burger.

Now because these Stuffing Stuffed Burgers cook in a gravy, it&rsquos only natural to serve mashed potatoes with this dish so that the gravy can smother the burger and the mashed potatoes as well.

Plus, as we all know, you can&rsquot go wrong with meat and potatoes!

This dish was a hit and is now a favorite! Simple, delicious and easy to make!

If you love stuffing and need an excuse to eat it all year round (or use up the leftovers) give these Stuffing Stuffed Burgers a try!

  1. Start by dividing fresh ground beef into 2-ounce balls, two balls per finished burger. Place the ball between two sheets of plastic wrap on the table. If you want a larger burger, use 3-ounce balls. Be sure to add more salt to the burger if using more beef.
  2. Flatten the meat balls with the bottom of a stick skillet, pressing evenly and firmly.
  3. The finished patties should be about 5 to 6 inches wide, and 1/4 to 3/16ths of an inch thick.
  4. Carefully remove the patty from the plastic wrap and set on a plate nearby. Repeat with the remaining patties.
  5. Place one slice of American cheese in the center of half of the patties. How you fit the cheese is up to you—it doesn’t really matter, any way you slice it.
  6. Place the remaining patties over the cheese-covered ones and pinch all the way around the edges several times until the seal is not visible.
  7. Flip the patties with a thin metal spatula and pinch around the perimeter again, to ensure against blowout.
  8. Press the sides of the patty in to form a circle about 4 1/2-inches wide and 1/2-inch thick.
  9. Use a paper towel to apply a thin layer of oil to a heavy stainless steel or cast iron skillet and preheat it over medium-high heat until lightly smoking. Season your patty, add it to the skillet, and press down firmly with a spatula for 3-4 seconds to help contact between the patty and the skillet. Cook until well browned, about 2-3 minutes.
  10. Flip the patty and continue to cook the second side until desired doneness is reached, about a minute for rare, two for medium rare, or three for medium.
  11. Place the burger in a toasted bun with condiments of your choice:
  • Cheddar cheese with bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • Swiss and cooked mushrooms
  • Caramelized onions
  • Peanut butter
  • Jalapeno Cheddar
