Cheese, Green Chiles and Mushroom Stuffed Burgers

With grilling season upon us, I have been getting some good use out of my handy dandy Stuffed Hamburger Press from Williams-Sonoma. I got it as an Xmas gift and couldn't wait to try it.  My most recent stuffing, was one with cheese, green chiles and mushrooms, and it was fabulous! There is just something about having all your favorite burger toppings on the INSIDE of the burger!

1 lb ground beef
1 tbsp fajita seasoning
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp dried, minced onions
6 slices of American cheese
1 (4 oz) can chopped green chiles, drained
1 (4 oz) can sliced mushrooms, drained
*Makes 3 large burgers

Mix together the ground beef, fajita seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, and minced onions.

Following the stuffer instruction, fill each side with some of the ground beef, pressing down the middle to form a small well in the center. 

Add a slice of cheese (i folded in the corners so it fit better), a small spoonful of chiles and mushrooms. Close, pushing both sides together firmly, to seal the burger. (If you don't have the burger stuffer tool, just make 2 thin patties of your own, put the cheese, green chiles and mushrooms on top of one patty. Then put the other patty on top, pressing down and sealing the edges, creating one burger).

Cook burgers on the grill for about 10 minutes on each side, depending on your grill and how you like your burgers cooked.

When they are about ready to be taken off the grill, add another slice of cheese on top. You can add whatever other toppings you like, we just did tomatoes and ketchup.

While this was probably my favorite stuffed burger so far, a few other awesome stuffed burgers we have concocted:

- Mix goat cheese with some fresh herbs (we used basil), and garlic salt. Stuff inside of burgers, and top with balsamic sauteed mushrooms and sliced avocados.

- Stuff burgers with Pepper Jack Cheese, and top with grilled onions and tomato.

What's your favorite stuffed burger recipe??
