- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1⁄4 cup green onion, chopped
- Place the ground beef in a large mixing bowl, add 1 Tbs of the soup mix and mix it in well.
- Shape the hamburger into 12 1/2" thick patties In a medium mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, remaining soup mix and the green onions Place 1 Tbs of the cream cheese filling on a patty, and then cover with another patty, sealing the edges together.
- Refrigerate the hamburgers for at least 1 hour before cooking.
- To Freeze: Flash Freeze uncooked on a cookie sheet until solid then put into a ziplock bag or vacuum seal quantity desired.
- To Cook: Thaw in refrigerator and grill as usual.
These got high marks from my family. I prepared 4 the day I mixed them up. I probably filled each with too much cream cheese (I hate leftovers, and it makes considerably more than 8 T filling), but I got them closed after a struggle. I made the first batch in the Foreman clone (which I wouldn't recommend since it squished all the filling out). The second batch froze and thawed beautifully. I panfried them and didn't lose the filling. And everyone thought they were really "cool." I might experiment with a spice mixture so I can ditch the sugary soup mix, but other than that, these are perfect! Oh, and I forgot to buy green onions, but I'll definitely add them next time.
5 star all the way. I used cream cheese with sundried tomato. I found that by making each pattie 1/2 inch thick that the hamburgers were too fat (1") & stubby so I made each 1/4 inch thick ending up with a 1/2" hamburger filled with the cream cheese mixture. Loved the flavor from the herb/garlic soup mix. I topped the burger with lettuce tomato & cheese, grilled mushrooms on the side and Baking stone fries - terrific Saturday night dinner.
