This recipe for Bacon Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Burgers got multiple of my “happy dinner” dances and quite a few “oh yeahs” too!
Something magical happens when stuffing burgers with bacon and cheese.
How to make Bacon Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Burgers
The stuffed part of the burgers is a jalapeno popper filling…cream cheese, shredded cheese, and a minced jalapeno.
And the bacon part of these burgers is mixed in with a pound and a half of ground beef.
I also mixed in some Worcestershire sauce, kosher salt, and pepper.
Form the ground beef into 8 thin burger patties.
And also form the cream cheese filling into 4 patties that are slightly smaller than the burger patties.
Then place the cream cheese patty on a burger just like this.
When I told my welder fabricator husband I wanted to make stuffed burgers he even made me a metal burger press that was perfect for forming and stuffing these.
So of course he was a part of every step of building these gorgeous burgers.
These can certainly be made without this handy dandy tool, but it did make it very nice.
Put another beef patty right over top and seal the edges and press it all together.
Repeat with the remaining burgers for a total of 4.
These burgers will grill over medium high heat for 4 to 6 minutes per side, depending on how you like your burger cooked.
Some of the filling started coming out of mine, but at least I didn’t lose any of it.
Put even more cheese on the burgers during the last minute of grilling.
Put them on a bun and add additional toppings of choice such as mayo, ketchup, pickle, lettuce…whatever you like 🙂
Bacon Jalapeno Stuffed Burgers tasted even more spectacular than they look!
No wonder the filling started spilling out!
Just look at how much I stuffed in there…SOOOO good!
