Smokey Cheddar Burgers

These burgers were an experiment on flavors that my family and I like. The idea of stuffing the burger with the cheese makes it unique, and adds flavor. I hope you like them too!


1 1/2 pounds ground beef (I use 80% lean)
2 tbls Hickory smoked barbecue sauce (
1 tsp dijon mustard
Ground Chipotle pepper
Sharp Cheddar cheese, sliced thin
Lettuce leaves Ripe
Tomatoes, sliced
6 Whole Wheat or whole grain sandwich rolls


Mix the ground beef with the barbecue sauce & dijon mustard. Divide the mixture to make 6 burgers. Mold 2/3 of each of the 6 parts into a thin burger, place a thin slice of cheddar in the middle and cover with the remianing 1/3 beef mixture. Continue to shape the burger until the cheese in enclosed. Sprinkle each burger with Chipotle pepper to taste. A little for a mild burger, more for a spicy burger. Grill to your preferred wellness. Medium to medium well works best. Place on a whole wheat roll & top with lettuce and tomato.


Other condiments are optional, but you wont need much! Great served with a cold green bean salad.
