Original recipe yields 8 burgers



  1. Preheat a grill for medium heat. When hot, lightly oil the grate. In a medium bowl, stir together the jalapenos and cream cheese.
  2. Divide the ground beef into 16 portions and pat out each one to 1/4 inch thickness. Spoon some of the cream cheese mixture onto the center of 8 of the patties. Top with the remaining patties, pressing the edges together to seal.
  3. Grill for about 10 minutes per side, or until well done, taking care not to press down on the burgers as they cook. This will make the cheese ooze out. Serve on buns with your favorite toppings.

I made this the other night and my boyfriend and I absolutely loved it. I used a jar of mild sliced jalapenos and a container of chive and onion cream cheese. We threw the cream cheese, meat, and jalapenos in a Kitchen Aid mixer and mixed it up until it was all nice and pink. This broke up the jalapenos a bit. We were a little concerned that the meat being mixed so much wouldn't patty well or hold together, but we were wrong. Mixing it a lot also gave the burgers a really great light texture that brought out the flavors. We didn't have a grill at the time, so we cooked the burgers in a skillet and they came out great. We wished we hadn't scaled down the recipe so we would have lots of left-overs.



These burgers Are GREAT!!! I would recommend putting the cream cheese in the middle. I tryed both ways, mixing and stuffing the burgers. There IS a taste differance. Mixing it together was like eating a meatloaf burger, putting the stuffing in the middle made for a tastier burger. RECOMMEND BACON!!!



This tastes amazing! The only thing I found was using mustard, ketchup, relish etc. with these kind of took away from the cream cheese flavour. I would maybe just use a bit of mayo and veggies (lettuce, tomato, onion) and try to stay away from any over powering condiments/sauces.
