Why You'll Love Them!
Who loves hamburgers? We think these homemade cheese-stuffed burgers are the best hamburgers because you make them and cook them exactly the way YOU want. If you're looking to step up your hamburger game, and something a little different and unique, this is the recipe for you.
Be sure to use the actual recipe card below for the fully detailed instructions. Ground chuck is perfectly seasoned then shaped into 8 patties of equal size and thickness. Four of the patties are topped with a blue cheese and cheddar cheese mixture. The remaining 4 patties are placed on top, the edges sealed, and grilled to perfection.
When the burgers are done, remove them from the grill, and top each patty with pimento cheese and cooked bacon. The pimento cheese will slowly start to melt over the hot hamburger patty, mmm! Garnish with lettuce and tomato, if desired. We've been told this is the best hamburger recipe, so please give it a try and let us know what you think!
Ingredients for the Stuffed Burgers
Ground Beef - 80/20 ground chuck (grass-fed beef actually tastes better).
Blue Cheese Crumbles - 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.
Pimento Cheese - 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 - used fresh or dried.
Olive Oil - only used 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!
What Kind of Meat Makes the Best Hamburger
Use a good quality hamburger meat that's slightly fatty such as an 80/20 ground chuck. For best results, use grass fed beef. Ever since we discovered the higher quality, better taste, and tenderness of grass fed beef, we are hooked.
If you have a farmer's market nearby, give them a visit! We visit our farmer's market on Saturdays and pick out local, grass-fed beef. I love going to the farmer's market and getting to talk with the farmers who have raised the cows, grown the vegetables, and raised the chickens that have laid the cage free eggs. I appreciate the farmers so much. However, if you don't have a farmer's market in your area, try FarmFoodsMarket. They offer grass fed beef at reasonable prices. Plus you get to pick the farm where your beef comes from. How neat is that!
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). If you have the time, you could make your own pimento cheese as there are many great recipes available on the intranet. My favorite homemade pimento cheese recipe comes from Add a Pinch, Southern Pimento Cheese Recipe.
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 the Perfect Cheese Stuffed Burgers
STEP 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.
STEP 2: Combine the blue cheese, cheddar cheese, and parsley flakes. Mound equally on top of 4 patties.Top with 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).
STEP 3: Place patties on pre-heated grill. Alternatively, heat the oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Cook the patties 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 2 tablespoon pimento cheese. Serve on hamburger bun with lettuce & tomato, if desired.
When is National Hamburger Day?
Yes, there is a National Hamburger Day and it's celebrated on the 28th day of each May. Honestly, I think Americans celebrate hamburger day every day! Be sure to check out your local restaurants on National Hamburger Day as many of them run specials and you can get some great hamburger deals.
How Long Does Hamburger Meat Stay Good in the Fridge?
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.
Low Carb Burger Option
Looking for a low carb hamburger? Simply skip the bun, or order a low carb bun such as from Great Low Carb Bread Company.
