Jalapeno Stuffed Burger


We all love grilling season and we all love Burgers and Hot Dogs. But let’s face it after a while, burgers can get a bit boring.


Our recipes this week are going to feature some unique stuffed burgers…

Today we are featuring a “Jalapeno Stuffed Burger”. As the name indicates it is stuffed with a jalapeno and some Fontina cheese.

When you make these you need to remember you need to allow for the extra ground beef to make a burger large enough to be stuffed. They will be pretty big, so you can also plan to share as well!

We did remove the seeds from the jalapeno and stuffed it without cooking or roasting it, so it was pretty mild in the burger.

If you like some heat I would suggest roasting the pepper before stuffing it (just be careful not to roast it so much that it’s too soft to stuff). But this will definitely bring out some heat!!

We served this with a simple coleslaw that is quick and easy to throw together. I didn’t complicate it.

My advice to you is that you wear gloves when you cut the jalapeno. The oils from the peppers can linger on your hands for some time and you wouldn’t want to rub your eye or your nose without getting all of this off your hands.
