My husband has been asking for stuffed burgers all summer. I always thought it was going to be so much work for some reason, but they were so easy! And there’s so much flavor inside, you don’t even really need any toppings. Plus, you could basically stuff the burger with anything you like or switch out ingredients depending on what you have in your refrigerator.
I recently received a sample of Littles and Lydees Zoe’s Jerk BBQ Sauce to try, so I wanted to come up with something a little different to use it for. This sauce had a great spice to it, and I can’t wait to use it in other recipes!
Even though it’s September and Starbucks is pushing pumpkin spice lattes, there’s still plenty of warm weather and summer left to enjoy! So go get those grills fired up this weekend and throw on some burgers.
Stuffed Burgers with Smoked Gouda, Bacon and BBQ Sauce, makes 4
- 2 lbs ground sirloin
- 2 slices thick cut bacon, cooked and chopped
- 2 ounces smoked Gouda, diced
- 4 Tablespoons BBQ Sauce (I used Littles and Lydees Jerk BBQ)
- salt & pepper to taste
- 4 pretzel buns
Divide beef into 8 equal parts. Form into flattened patties. Top four of the patties with equal amounts of chopped bacon, Gouda and one tablespoon of barbecue sauce. Top with remaining four patties and pinch together to form a seal. Season with salt and pepper.
Turn grill to medium high. Cook burgers for 3-5 minutes on each side depending on desired doneness.
