We all know what season it is, it is grilling season; the time to hang outdoors with family and friends, for a few months at least (Milwaukee, WI) before we go back into hibernation mode. Grilling season is something that is truly enjoyed by many, and as some in my network grill all year around, I am not that fortunate, so I take my grilling pretty serious. Sure there is fish, steak, chops, brats, weiners, vegetable, and plenty more, but over the course of the next couple of weeks, I am focusing on a stuffed burger and a grilled pizza.
I typically make patties, season with salt and pepper, a dash of worcestershire sauce, and grill to my liking, however this past weekend I decided to go a different route and make a stuffed burger. I did this for two reasons; one because I was really hungry, and two because I have never attempted this, go figure.
Let’s get started.
- Ground Beef, you determine the amount, keeping in mind you want thinner patties
- Salt and Pepper
- Worcestershire Sauce
- Blue Cheese
- Nice Buns
Start by forming thin patties, adding salt and pepper to both sides. Once you have the patties ready, add a bit of worcestershire sauce to each patty, top with pancetta and blue cheese. You could crisp up your pancetta if you like as well. Take a second patty and place over the patty with the pancetta and cheese, sealing them. Throw these on the grill and cook to your desired warmth. The beautiful thing about these is you can stuff them with whatever you desire; other cheeses, mushrooms, pepperoni, peppers, etc. Or, you can simply go with the classic as pictured.
