Cheese-Stuffed Burgers on the Grill

Cheese inside a burger? What's not to love?  We go back to our roots here in Wisconsin for this Cheese-Stuffed Burger. It's really easy to do and your guests will thank you!


For the burger patties:
- 2 pounds ground beef (80% lean)
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 2 teaspoons Ground Pounder Garlic Seasoning
- 8 slices Wisconsin cheese (cheddar, colby, or your favorite melting cheese)
- Burger buns

For assembling:
- Lettuce, tomato slices, and other preferred toppings
- Ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, and other condiments


1. Prepare the Grill:
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Clean the grates and oil them lightly to prevent sticking.

2. Season the Ground Beef:
In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef with salt, pepper, and Ground Pounder. Gently mix the seasonings into the meat, being careful not to overwork it. Divide the seasoned meat into 8 equal portions.

3. Form Patty Halves:
Take one portion of seasoned meat and shape it into a thin patty. Repeat with another portion, creating a total of 4 thin patties.

4. Add Cheese:
Place a slice of Wisconsin cheese onto the center of two of the patties.

5. Create Stuffed Patties:
Take the other two thin patties and place them on top of the cheese-topped patties. Press the edges of the patties together to seal the cheese inside. Gently shape the stuffed patties into regular burger shapes.

6. Form Thick Patties:
Take the remaining seasoned meat portions and form them into 4 slightly larger patties. These will be the bottom halves of the burgers.

7. Assemble the Burgers:
Place a stuffed patty on top of each of the thicker patties, effectively sandwiching the cheese inside. Press the edges to seal them together.

8. Prep Toppings:
Prepare your preferred burger toppings such as lettuce, tomato slices, and any other condiments you like.

9. Grill the Burgers:
Place the stuffed burgers on the preheated grill. Cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side for medium doneness, adjusting the time based on your desired level of doneness. During the last 1-2 minutes of grilling, you can toast the burger buns on the grill.

10. Assemble and Serve:
Once the burgers are cooked to your liking, remove them from the grill. Place each burger on a toasted bun and add your preferred toppings and condiments.

11. Enjoy:
Serve the cheese-stuffed burgers with your favorite side dishes, such as potato salad or coleslaw. Enjoy the delicious and cheesy goodness of these Wisconsin-style burgers!
