Cheese-Stuffed Burgers – Everyday Food with Sarah Carey



Are you looking for an over-the-top burger experience? These juicy patties are oozing with flavor — and cheese!

Sarah’s Tip of the Day: Press your laundry — not your patties! All of the good juices that accumulate while cooking will be released if you push your burgers down on the grill. Once your burgers have hit the heat, step back and flip them just once!

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Serves 8

3 pounds ground beef chuck
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
Coarse salt and ground pepper
4 ounces blue cheese (or other soft cheese, such as Brie)
Oil, for grates
8 rolls or buns, split
2 cups packed baby spinach
2 beefsteak tomatoes, cut into 8 slices
Sauteed mushrooms (optional)
Grainy mustard (optional)
Roasted Red-Pepper Sauce

Heat grill to medium-high. In a large bowl, gently fold together beef, Worcestershire sauce, 1 tablespoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper. Form into 8 equal-size mounds.

Shape cheese into 8 equal-size disks. Press a small well in the center of each beef mound. Place cheese in well; wrap beef around cheese, pinching to seal.

Lightly oil grates. Place burgers on grill; cover. Cook until grill marks are visible on first side, 4 to 6 minutes. Turn burgers with a spatula; cook until grill marks are visible on other side and meat is just slightly pink in the middle, 4 to 6 minutes more for medium-rare.

To serve, layer bottom roll halves with spinach, burgers, tomato, and mushrooms, if using, dividing evenly. Spread top roll half with mustard and Roasted Red-Pepper Sauce, as desired.
