Adding you favorite herb-flavored cream cheese from your local market or bagel shop makes this burger a breeze to make and oh so tasty. Use a specialty bun for that gourmet touch. The only essential thing when stuffing a burger with cheese is to make sure that the edges are sealed well, to keep the cheese from leaking out during cooking.

Makes 6 servingsthumbnail1
Total Time: 20 min.

 INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 pounds ground beef chuck, 85% lean
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons herbed garlic cream   cheese, such as Boursin
  • Oil for coating grill grate
  • 6 hamburger buns, split

DIRECTIONS:
Using your hands, mix the beef, garlic, salt, and pepper in a bowl until well blended; do not overmix. Using a light touch, form into 12 patties no more than 1/2 inch thick.

Put a portion (about 1 1/2 teaspoons) of cheese in the center of each of 6 patties; top with the remaining patties and press together, taking care to seal the edges well.
Refrigerate the burgers until the grill is ready. Brush the grill grate and coat it with oil. Put the burgers on the grill, cover, and cook for 9 minutes, flipping after 5 minutes, for medium-done (150 degrees F, slightly pink). Add a minute per side for well-done (160 degrees F).
To toast the buns, put them cut sides down directly over the fire for the last minute of cooking. If serving the burgers directly from the grill, serve on the buns. If the burgers will sit, even for a few minutes, keep the buns and burgers separate until just before eating.

I’m having some good laughs and enjoying reading the comments from yesterday’s “Pregnancy Cravings” post. It was entertaining to read that women crave healthy food, comfort food, and most especially, junk food (Krispy Kremes and Coke?!)!

I did have some women tell me that they didn’t necessarily have a particular craving, but instead had food aversions. So thinking back to my first pregnancy, I vividly remember not wanting to eat goat cheese. The mere thought of it made me gag and run for the bathroom. If we were grocery shopping, my husband would have to go to the dairy section by himself because I just couldn’t chance seeing goat cheese! (more…)
