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.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I live in Las Vegas. I was lucky enough to run into Recipezaar around Nov. 2000 and got hooked quickly. I am a cookbook collector and have been collecting recipes for as long as I can remember. My DH had to build in shelves for all my cookbooks! I like to dabble with OAMC and for a few years hosted the Budget/OAMC forum with some great people over there. Even though I don't work in the forum any longer I've set up a lot of cookbooks for the purpose of OAMC and stretching food that might be helpful. Please feel free to check them out! I go on food jags and cooking jags! Please come say hi to me and chat on facebook. I currently host a blog for saving money through finding deals and coupons if you are interested. Most of the time I try to cook and have a good dinner on the table but I'll be honest enough to say there is still fast food occasionally in the budget! I have had such wonderful support here whenever I need it. Thank you all for being here! Just a quick note on how I rate recipes: ? 5 stars - This recipe is perfect. (My DH is truly a critic and doesn't give 5's unless it's amazing) I would recommend it to others and would definitely make again. ? 4 stars - This recipe was good but I would change something in it next time. ? 3 stars - This is a recipe I would not make again but it was OK ? 2 stars - This recipe I would not make again and we didn't like it at all ? 1 star - This recipes did not work out/taste was unappealing and wouldn't make again
