Cheese Stuffed Burgers

Have I mentioned how much I love my cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler? I do!! I do! So I used it to actually grill vs. make Panini’s. It worked wonderfully!!!

So – I took my meat – I used two pounds.

Gathered my other supplies: Mozzarella cheese and American/Cheddar, breadcrumbs, garlic, blue cheese, carrots and eggs. I know – random ingredients – I was experimenting.

I didn’t really measure – just threw things in. If I had to guess – I would say about a ¼ cup to ½ cup of breadcrumbs.

About 1 Tbs of Garlic and about 2 Tbs of Blue Cheese dressing.

A handful of shredded carrots – looking back – I should have chopped them finer. And add the 2 eggs.
Then – mix it all together. (Don’t worry – I didn’t forget the cheese…)

Set your temperatures. I was at about 350, on the Grill side, Med or High - I can't remember.

First I made sliders for the kids – don’t they look super cute!!!

Complete meal, with apple sauce, green beans - and mini burgers - they were the perfect size for their little hands!

Then onto the adult meal. I took like ¾ of the meat for a burger – made a little divot in the middle, and put the mozz cheese in the center – then covered it with the rest of the meat to make the burger – a little surprise. I didn’t take a picture of this – because my hands were covered in burger meat – and I had 5 hungry people!

Grilled them up.

Top with Lettuce, Tomato, Cheese, mustard and ketchup. Yummy!!!!

My cousin has grilled burgers like Panini’s – I tried with the bun – they didn’t turn out so pretty – and I was full from the first one. Next time – I’ll just use regular bread like she does if I want a burger Panini.

They were really yummy!! Next time I’ll probably add Bacon – and when stuffing with the mozz cheese – add a little blue cheese or feta to the center too. Yummo!
