Stuffed Hamburgers

Burger & Fries have nevr had it so good...


Recipe makes 4 Burgers: 

Cheese Filling:
1 cup mozzarella cheese 
3 tablespoons sun dried tomatoes 
1 tablespoon chopped garlic 
4 tablespoons fresh basil chiffonade
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/2 teaspoon pepper 
2 tablespoons cream cheese 

2 pounds ground beef
4 - slices of tomato 
4 slices mozzarella 
8 fresh basil leaves
4 burger buns


Cheese Stuffing:
Place mozzarella cheese, sun dried tomatoes, chopped garlic, fresh basil, salt and pepper in a bowl. 
Mix all the ingredients together then add a few small chunks of cream cheese. 
The cream cheese will hold everything together so the cheese forms a ball and stays where you put it.

To stuff the burger: 
Place 1/4 of a pound of ground beef on top a piece of plastic wrap. 
Press until it forms a large circle. 
The plastic wrap will keep the hamburger from sticking to the counter or cutting board.
Top the burger with a chunk of cheese stuffing. 
Top that with another 1/4 pound of burger. 
Press the sides to seal in the filling.

Repeat this process with remaining burgers. 
Heat a skillet or grill to medium high and brown the burger on both sides. 
Top with a slice of tomato, two leaves of fresh basil and a slice of mozzarella. 
Cover the burgers until the cheese melts. 
Serve on a toasted bun.
