What Goes into These Stuffed Cheeseburgers
Ground Beef - 80/20 ground chuck (grass-fed beef actually tastes better).
Blue Cheese Crumbles - known for its sharp, tangy flavor. Here's an interesting writeup about the 3 best blue cheeses from Bon Appetit.
Cheddar Cheese - shred your own if you can. The pre-shredded just doesn't taste the same with its powdery coating. I like this simple cheese grater from OXO.
Pimento Cheese - classic southern pimento cheese contains sharp cheddar, mayo, pimentos, and a touch of cayenne pepper. If you can get your hands on some Palmetto Pimento Cheese, then reach for this southern classic!
Bacon - thick cut is recommended. Tip: cook the bacon in the oven per package directions. No flipping required!
Worcestershire Sauce - adds delicious flavor!
Dijon Mustard - use regular mustard if that's all you have.
Minced Garlic - the minced garlic in the jar is very convenient since it's kept in the refrigerator
Black Pepper - freshly ground has more flavor and texture than finely ground.
Parsley - use fresh or dried.
Olive Oil - only use if cooking the hamburgers in a skillet on the stove. Not needed for the grill.
Lettuce and tomato (optional).
Hamburger buns - grab a hearty hamburger bun to handle these patties and toppings!
Pimento Cheese Topped Hamburgers
If you've never tried pimento cheese on your hamburger, then don't hesitate any longer! I can assure you, you won't be disappointed. Just be sure to purchase a good, high-quality pimento cheese (one that's made with real cheddar cheese and not the processed kind).
You'll want to make these burgers time and time again for family get-togethers, tailgating with friends, and date nights with your better half. For some additional ideas for a date night, check out this post 8 Inexpensive Date Ideas to Build Your Relationship.
How to Make Stuffed Cheeseburgers
(1) Combine the ground beef with the dijon mustard, worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, and black pepper. Divide equally into 8 balls. Press each ball to about ¼" thickness.
(2) Combine the blue cheese, cheddar cheese, and parsley flakes. Mound equally on top of 4 patties.
(3) Top with the remaining 4 patties pressing edges together to create a seal. Press the edges together with the "top" patty to form a seal so all that cheese won't come out while cooking (note the patty with edges sealed).
(4) Place patties on preheated grill. Alternatively, heat the oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Cook the patties for about 4 minutes, then gently turn over and cook an additional 4-5 minutes or until burgers are no longer pink.
Remove from heat and top each patty with some pimento cheese. Serve on a hamburger bun with bacon, lettuce, and tomato, if desired.
Frequently Asked Questions
Use a good quality hamburger meat that's slightly fatty such as an 80/20 ground chuck. For best results, use grass fed beef. It really does taste so much better and much more tender!
We order from Farm Foods Market. They offer grass fed beef at reasonable prices. Plus you get to pick the farm where your beef comes from. How neat is that!
Yes, there is a National Hamburger Day and it's celebrated on the 28th day of May. Honestly, I think Americans celebrate hamburger day every day!
The temperature in the refrigerator must be lower than 40 degrees Fahrenheit to keep foods fresh. I purchased a refrigerator thermometer to make sure my refrigerator's temperature was safe. They're fairly inexpensive and well worth the money.
Raw ground hamburger stays fresh for 1 to 2 days after purchase. Cooked hamburger meat will stay fresh for up to 3 days.
Looking for a low carb hamburger? Simply skip the bun, or order a low carb bun such as from Great Low Carb Bread Company.
If you have the time, let the ground beef come to room temperature before you begin making the patties (20-30 minutes). Room temperature beef tends to be juicier and more evenly cooked.
You can make these stuffed hamburger patties the day before you plan to grill them.
While grilling, do not press down on the patties with your spatula! You'll press out all the juices and make them dry. Ugh.
