Taste of Home Family-Friendly Stuffed Cheeseburgers

During the summer months, my family goes through a large amount of burgers. I try to vary up the recipes and use different types of ground meat, in order to keep my family from getting bored. My oldest son loves mushrooms, but I have been unable to find a burger recipe incorporating mushrooms which my whole family enjoys. The June/July issue of Taste of Home magazine had a recipe for Family-Friendly Stuffed Cheeseburgers, combining mushrooms and cheese, two of my boys favorite foods.

This recipe has 14 ingredients. The prep work is easy, with only the onion and jalapeno requiring chopping. I crushed my saltines in a plastic bags to decrease on the mess factor in my kitchen. Instead of using an outdoor grill, I used my indoor grill. I made sure to keep the grill open in order to keep the cheese from spilling out. The total prep time is approximately 40 minutes.

This recipe makes 6 very large 1/3 pound burgers. My family enjoyed the recipe, but we all agreed that it was a little too cheesy for our tastes. I think this recipe would benefit from the cream cheese being eliminated and using 1 cup of shredded cheddar, instead of 1 1/2 cups. The taste of the actually burger is delicious, and would go great with a warmed smokey-sweet tomato based bbq sauce. This recipe could easily be made into 8 1/4 pound burgers, which would be a little less drastic on the meat. For an outdoor bbq, this recipe could easily be modified to taste delicious and feed a crowd of hungry cheeseburger eaters.
