Who doesn’t love a good burger?! Make it a juicy STUFFED skillet burger and then you’ll be in heaven!! My Husband (bless his heart) is the sweetest man to tell me that I am the best cook. (I am absolutely not ðŸ˜† but sweet of him). He does swear tho, that my stuffed burgers are his absolute favorite tho. I’m not gonna lie, they are kind of my favorite too.
I have always done stuffed burgers, for years and years. I only recently experimented with doing them in the skillet tho, so then the Stuffed Skillet Burger was born. It was absolutely the best burger I made when I first used the skillet!
The recipe isn’t complicated at all. When it comes to cooking, I like simple and easy!
TIPS FOR PUTTING YOUR BURGER TOGETHER:
- You can stuff them with any cheese, however I love to use both the spreadable garlic & herb cheese and asiago cheese. (Stinkier cheese tastes better ðŸ˜› )
- I use a food scale to measure out 4 oz of the raw hamburger meat. I roll them in balls then press into flat patties.
- Don’t leave them too thick otherwise it doesn’t cook thru or will take longer to cook thru.
- cook on the stove on a medium heat
- the Asiago bagels aren’t a “must” but they sure do taste amazing on them!!
- THIS is the seasoning I use. (I use it for a lot of other stuff as well, it is perfect for these burgers)
Stuffed Skillet Burgers
- cast iron skillet
- food scale
- 1 tbsp olive oil to oil your skillet
- 2 lbs hamburger meat I use 93/7 ground beef, I like to minimize the fat content.
- 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
- 1 tbsp julio's seasoning
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire
- 4 slices Asiago cheese or the cheese of your choice
- 4 tbsp spreadable cheese I LOVE Alouette brand, garlic & herb flavor!
- First thing is first, get that skillet oiled up with the olive oil, so the meat doesn't stick.
- Start preheating your skillet on low-medium heat
- put your ground beef in a bowl and mix up with your hands
- add your teriyaki sauce, Worcestershire sauce and seasoning into the bowl and mix together
- Take your cheese slices and tear into quarters (so you should have 4 mini slices instead of one large slice)
- measure out 4 oz of the meat mixture and roll into a ball then flatten out into a patty. (You will want it to be spread out and not too thick) Repeat with the remaining mixture.
- After you have your patties ready, take one and spread your spreadable cheese onto one patty (if you are using it) and then add 4 of the mini slices of cheese on top
- take another patty and add on top of the cheese patty, and press together.
- Pinch the sides together and smooth out until you can't see the cheese and it looks like a giant patty; repeat with remaining patties
- bring your skillet to a medium heat and add your patties. Depending on the size of your skillet, you should be able to cook at least two at a time (I have a 10" skillet and was able to cook 3 at a time)
- Cook for 5-6 minutes, (this will depend on how you like your burger, I like mine medium or medium rare ðŸ˜¬ lol) then flip to the other side
- put on your bun of choice, add your toppings and enjoy!!!
- I recommend using a food thermometer like THIS one if you like your burgers a certain way. Â For me, I like medium rare which takes about 4 minutes on each side. Â I recommend 5-6 minutes for more well done. Â
- varying degrees for burgers are: Â
- Rare: 120Â°-125Â°
- Medium Rare: 130Â°-135Â°
- Medium Well: 150Â°-155Â°
- Well Done: 160Â°-165Â°
- I recommend the Alouette brand spreadable cheese
- I used Arugula instead of regular lettuce and I personally really enjoyed the flavor more!
