To celebrate National Burger Month, we’re sharing burger recipes from some of our favorite Texas friends! This recipe comes from Brittany’s blog, Naturally Estes.
Thin large hamburger patties (we made 4 burgers so we needed 8 patties)
Tillamook Medium Cheddar Cheese, slices
Seasoning salt & garlic powder
We made two types of burgers; one regular stuffed and then one kicked up a notch with a little heat. We’re in Texas, what else could you expect?!
For the spicy “Texas” option you’ll combine cream cheese, shredded cheese, jalapenos, chives, and bacon. If I were you, I’d also add a shot or two of Texas Pete (or your favorite hot sauce) to the mix. Then for the regular, yet still very yummy, stuffed version combine cream cheese, shredded cheese, bacon, and chives together. Really the beauty of these burgers is that you can stuff them with whatever you want. Maybe you want to add mushrooms or olives…have at it!
Add a dollop of your desired “stuffing” mixture to the center of a thin hamburger patty. Then place another patty on top and pinch the two patties together. Once you have the edges pinched, I sort of shaped the burger again so it looked like a nice plump patty. Make sure you keep your burgers in order so you don’t forget who has which stuffed version. If my husband had the “Texas” version, he might die, ha! Next sprinkle seasoning salt and garlic powder on both sides of your patties. Then grill those babies!
Once your burgers are almost done, place your Tillamook cheese on top so it can melt. Yummy! We also lightly coated the buns with butter and flash grilled them. That way they were crisp and warm.
