I made a few subsitutions out of necessity. I halved the recipe b/c there are only 2 of us in the house, and I used ground turkey b/c that's all I had on hand. I didn't have quite enough minced garlic, so I used 3tbsp minced garlic and then added garlic powder and onion power too. I also added a splash of worcestershire sauce b/c I do that any time I make burgers. Finally, the store didn't have the garlic and herb cream cheese so we used onion and chive cream cheese. These were delicious! I cooked them on the George Foreman grill, but I did it with the grill open and cooked them for 5 mins on each side and then 2 mins with the grill closed to make sure they were good and stuck together. The garlic flavor, even w/o the garlic cream cheese, was wonderful and the cheese in the middle was a treat. I do think I may add a little heat next time, perhaps a splash or two of sriracha sauce, but that's just a personal preference thing. Thank you for a delicious burger recipe.
OMG these were wonderful. I used garlic and herb boursin. I think in the future I will top these with bacon just to ensure my arteries are clogging. Thanks for the recipe, this is definately a keeper. I made this for ZWT5.
We really enjoyed these. The cream cheese in the middle is the best. The burgers,themselves, were very "tasty"(DH's word),too. Will be repeated. I served these on homemade buns, Homemade Hamburger Buns (Bread Machine), and they were VERY filling.THANKS! made for Xtra Hot Dishes of ZWT6.
This is one heck of a good burger!!! WOW!!!! I finally tried out that French Laughing Cow cheese (light/garlic and herb kind), and boy was it good!! The little wedges said that they were 3/4 of an ounce, so I used one and a half. Next time I'll try and sneak in 2 of them! ;) :) LOL! I also topped it with provolone because I'm a cheeseaholic!! I used 1 rounded tsp. fresh minced garlic, and next time I'll add even more. Since I didn't have any hamburger buns left, I just put it on a french bread-style hoagie roll, and it was fantastic!! Topped also with lettuce and tomato. LOVED, loved, loved it!!! :) Thanks so very much for a GREAT burger!!!!! Can't wait to make this for my hubby!! Made for the ZWT5!! :)
GREAT idea! I make a similar stuffed burger recipe and I liked the cream cheese when it melted in the middle of this burger, made it a little extra surprise! I used Boursin and good quality Charolais steak hache. Made for my supper tonight and saved for the future. A Family Pick recipe for ZWT4 - thanks Sarah! FT:-)
This was great even though I forgot to add the garlic into the meat. We enjoyed this different burger, thank you!
Excellent!!! This recipe is great the way it is, easy to make and very tasty!
I really enjoyed making these, they were really tasty (and super simple)! I was using up the last of my cream cheese, so I had a little bit more than what I could fit in the burger, so I just spread it on the bun. :)
I loved this! I had to roll myself to the couch to review this. My boys said it was OK. I didn't have garlic and herb cream cheese, so I softened some cream cheese, added green onion and minced garlic and a little bit of Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb seasoning. I thought it was yummy! I may try stuffing a chicken breast with it next time! Thanks Sarah!
We totally loved these burgers!
