I made these this summer when my father-in-law came into town for a visit. It was a beautiful summer night and perfect for grilling up burgers! Remember, you can still make these now, doesn't matter how cold or wintery it is, burgers and grilling can still happen! :) The kids thought that these were fantastic and barely even noticed the mushrooms that filled the middle... Love when that happens!
Mushroom Stuffed Cheeseburgers
(recipe found in Taste of Home)
2 bacon strips, finely chopped
2 cups chopped fresh mushrooms
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
2 pounds lean ground beef
2 tablespoons steak sauce
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
4 slices provolone cheese, halved
8 kaiser rolls, split
In a large skillet, cook and stir bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Cook and stir mushrooms, onion and peppers in bacon drippings until tender. Using slotted spoon, remove to a small bowl; cool completely. Stir in bacon. In a large bowl, combine beef, steak sauce and seasoned salt, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into 16 thin patties. Top eight of the patties with cheese, folding over cheese to fit within 3/4" of the edge. Spread with mushroom mixture. Top with remaining patties, pressing edges to enclose filling. Grill the stuffed burgers, uncovered, over medium high heat or broil 4" from heat 5-6 minutes on each side. serve on rolls.
