Stuff Me Baby

mmmm just look at that melty cheesy goodness!!

Originally I had found a recipe for feta and spinach turkey burgers that I was dying to try... apparently that wasn't the only thing dying. My bag of spinach didn't make it during the move!

But, when you have lemons... make lemonade! So rather than pouting or running out to the store I rummaged through my packed fridge to see what I had on hand. 97% organic beef, lite mozzarella, grape tomatoes and garlic herb feta were found... and that my friends is when I came up with this mouth watering recipe! You are definitely going to want to make this!

What you need:
Ground beef of your choice - I used lean ground beef but ground chicken or turkey works!
1/2 cup diced grape tomatoes
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup feta - I used garlic herb flavored!
pepper for seasoning!

Grab a handful of your ground meat (I know raw meat is gross but this is topped with deliciousness!). Flatten it out and place about a spoonful of each the feta, mozzarella and tomatoes. 

 Roll into a ball so that the cheese and tomatoes are covered! Repeat until all your burgers are prepared and season them with the pepper.

Don't mind the other burgers in that photo... I know that the grill comes out about once a week so I made sure to utilize it tonight! Grill your burgers until they are the temperature you like and enjoy!

Top with whatever you want! I went simple and just used some lettuce from my grandmothers garden. Grilled onions would be bangin (yes I just used that word) on this burger!

When you cut it in half you get all of its melty goodness!

  1. That burger is redonk-ulous! I'm quite jealous!!

  2. Pretty cool -- have some g beef for my hubby -- maybe I''ll make these and surprise him... Thanks for the idea and Happy Friday! xoxo

  3. My boyfriend would like these a lot more than the bean burgers!! haha but i dont do red meat so thats all him!

  4. @fashionfitnessfoodie the combo of tomato, mozz and feta is amazing in turkey burgers! don't worry... there were chicken burgers on that plate too ;-)

  5. @Corey @ Learning Patience Happy Friday to you!! I bet he would love this for dinner! I made it for my mom and bf and made some chicken burgers for our lunch today!

  6. Okay I am now entering for those chips. YUM YUM!

    Is it bad that I have never thought to stuff a burger when I make it? I always think of doing it because I've had deeelish burgers with yummy things stuffed inside.

    I need to try this one day!! nom nom nom


  7. mmmm. Cheese-stuffed anything is always a good time :)

  8. Whoaaa the burger looks amazing! I've never made a burger stuffed with goodies! Yummm :D

  9. My mouth is watering! I've been eating so much fish this week, so a burger sounds REALLY good right now. I actually bought ground beef for the first time in years a few weeks ago (organic and grass-fed), and made a similar burger stuffed with laughing cow, feta, spinach and onions. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. SO good. I think beef gets a bad wrap...If you buy the good stuff, it can make a super satisfying, delicious, healthy meal! xoxoxo
