Cheese Filled Hamburgers

This is my adaptation of a recipie that came from a barbeque book many years ago. I can't remember the book, but I make these for nearly every barbeque we have (and we have a lot)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the top five ingredients together in one bowl.
  2. Mix the last two ingredients together in another bowl.
  3. Form them into four balls.
  4. Put a deep well into each of the four balls of meat, and place a ball of grated cheese and chopped onion into that well.
  5. Carefully cover the cheese and onion with the meat,.
  6. then carefully flatten the burgers, until they are about 1/2" thick.
  7. Then put them in the freezer for approximately 1 hour before you cook them (this ensures they do not fall apart when you cook them).
  8. Then cook them on the barbeque or in the frying pan.

For some reason we didn't find these to have a lot of flavor. I followed the recipe exactly and used the cheddar and onion filling. I think the burger itself may have needed a little extra spice or maybe some BBQ sauce...sorry...

These were absolutely great! Very tasty and different from regular burgers. I think the cheese on the inside helps to keep them nice and moist.

These burgers are fantastic! I made them with the monterey jack/jalapeno filling last night and they couldn't have tasted better! I cooked them on our George Foreman grill, but because of time constraints I only put them in the freezer for 30 mins - and they stayed together fine! I didn't put any plain salt in and I grated a little extra cheese for on top. I highly recommend these for a twist on hamburgers!
