Herb & Cheese-Stuffed Burgers

If you're tired of the same old burgers, give these a try! Recipe from Taste of Home. I won't be posting again until next week...my beautiful sister-in-law is getting married and the next few days will be busy busy!



Ingredients
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
3 teaspoons Dijon mustard, divided
2 green onions, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
2 tablespoons ketchup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1/4 teaspoon dried sage leaves
1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
4 hard rolls, split
Lettuce leaves and tomato slices, optional

Directions
In a small bowl, combine the cheddar cheese, cream cheese, parsley and 1 teaspoon mustard; set aside.

In another bowl, combine the onions, bread crumbs, ketchup, salt, rosemary, sage and remaining mustard. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into eight thin patties. Spoon cheese mixture onto center of four patties; top with remaining patties and press edges firmly to seal.

Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear. Serve on rolls with lettuce and tomato if desired. Yield: 4 servings.

  1. Hi Elana!
    I saw you had a food blog on facebook and wanted to check it. Over the past few years I've really become interested in finding and trying new recipes. Like you, I also like to collect cookbooks. And I love looking at pictures of food. :-) I hope all is well with you and your family.
    Take care,
