Stuffed burgers were the specialty tonight, and again, I scoured the web for something that sounded good and then adapted to my liking. And again, they were amazing. When the boyfriend doesn’t say anything while eating, you know it has to be good.
So we used a combo of ground beef and ground turkey, chopped up some green onions and mushrooms, and mixed that all together. Then we added in ground mustard and cumin to the meat. Form those into eight burgers. On four, put slices of havarti cheese (perfect for melting) and bacon, then put the other four on top and seal the edges so the goodies don’t come out.
A smokin’ hot pan is essential for these, and I bet they’d be even better on a grill. Pop them in the pan and let them cook four to five minutes and then serve them. We used poppy seed hamburger buns that were an extremely good deal at one of my favorite grocery store. For condiments, we mixed some Jack Daniels Horseradish Mustard (JDM!) with a little bit of original barbecue sauce and just a splash of Worcestershire. We mixed about a tablespoon of mayonnaise in as well, but I think I would omit that next time. Spread that yummy mixture on the bun and then add the burger, some tomato and a piece of lettuce and you have one scrumptious and filling burger.
On the side, of course we had fries – it’s a burger and we’re Americans. But I did spice them up a bit with seasoning salt, garlic powder, chili powder, cumin and just a bit of extra salt. Pop them in the oven and they are good and scrumptious. Because they have some of the same ingredients as the burger and condiment, they go quite nicely alongside such a hugely delicious burger.
