Jalapeño Popper Stuffed Burgers

I think I am coming down with something. I just feel off. Have you ever had a day like that? It’s a beautiful day outside and all I can think about is crawling back into bed and hoping tomorrow comes feeling a bit better.

Instead I am watching the Olympics.

I love watching the Olympics. Particularly, I love watching swimming, diving, gymnastics and track and field. I cannot wrap my head around how these people do what they do.

What they do is incredible.

If you’re going to watch the Olympics this weekend, I have a great recipe for you. I mean, let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to watch the Olympics on an outside television while splashing around in your pool? I might actually do that. Though I may end up doing something completely different like returning a loaner vehicle to Pennsylvania. It could go either way.

Anyway, if you end up lounging around and want to grill something up take a look at these delicious Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Burgers. Oh yes, I went there! Take a look!

1 pound ground beef

4 ounce Fat Free Cream Cheese, room temperature

8 ounces extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

1 jalapeño, small dice

2 slices bacon, cooked extra crispy

1 teaspoon pepper


Mix the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, jalapeno, bacon and pepper together in a medium bowl until fully incorporated

Make 16 small round beef patties

Take about half to one  tablespoon of the mixture and put it in the middle of 8 of the hamburger patties

Top each of the stuffed patties with the other patty

Seal the edges completely so the mixture is secure and will not ooze out while grilling

Grill until the beef is fully cooked and the cheese is nice and melted

Grill a hamburger slider bun, top with some leftover popper mixture and ENJOY!

I love jalapeno popper anything, just take a look at these jalapeno poppers, this quiche, this jalapeno popper stuffed chicken or jalapeno popper dip. See what I mean? I’m in love with the flavors!

I hope you give these hamburgers a try this weekend. They will bring the heat but you can easily cool yourself off with this delicious lemonade!
