Monday’s Menu: Jazz Up Those Burgers

We grill a lot of burgers in the summertime, so it’s fun to jazz them up a bit for something different and delicious. Here are a few variations that I really like:

Blue Cheese Stuffed BurgersĀ 

For Filling:

1 1/2 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives or finely chopped onion

For Burgers:

1 1/2 pound ground beef
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1 egg

Combine all filling ingredients and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine all burger ingredients, mix gently. Shape burger mixture into twelve 3 1/2 inch patties. Place 6 patties on waxed paper. Top each patty with about 1 tablespoonful filling mixture. Place remaining patties over filling and press edges to seal. Grill to desired doneness.

Sloppy Joe Burgers

1 1/2 pound ground beef
1/4 cup ketchup
1 envelope sloppy joe seasoning mix
6 slices American cheese

Combine ground beef, ketchup and seasoning mix, mix gently. Shape into 6 patties. Grill to desired doneness. During last 2 minutes of grilling, top each burger with a slice of American cheese.
