Stuffed Burgers

Stuffed Burger with Blue Cheese and PancettaWe 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
  • Pancetta
  • Nice Buns

Classic BurgerStart 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.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
