Texas Stuffed Grilled Burgers
Thanks to allrecipes.com for this terrific, original recipe.
Ingredients you’ll need:
- 5 pounds lean ground beef
- 6 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoons hickory seasoning (optional)
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 cups chopped onion
- 2 cups chopped fresh mushrooms
- 2 cups chopped cooked ham
- 3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
Preheat your grill for high heat. When hot, oil the grate lightly. In an appropriately sized bowl, mix the ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, hickory seasoning, salt and pepper until everything well blended together. Hand shape between 8 and 10 balls, and then flatten them into patties for grilling. On half of the patties (4-5), distribute the onions, the mushrooms, the chopped ham and the cheddar cheese. Cover the piles with the remaining patties, making certain to enclose the filling and to tightly seal the patties together. Grill the 4-5 patties for somewhere between 8 and 10 minutes on each side, or until the cheese in the middle has melted and the burger is well done.
