Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Hamburgers

Although I identify as a vegetarian, I enjoy a meat cheat day every once in awhile. When I eat meat I want it to be worth it. I want good quality, great taste and an explosion of flavor.

Stuffed hamburgers are one of my favorites. I have been known to stuff them with blue cheese (did not go over well with the hubs), American cheese, and many other ingredients. My favorite way to stuff them? I like it spicy.

These burgers pack a punch. They are the best of both guilty pleasures: jalapeno poppers and burgers. When fresh off the stove or grill, they spread world peace. They are the ultimate comfort and happy food.

  • 3 ounce cooked and cooled, chopped bacon

Take a small spoonful of burger meat and shape into a thin patty. Repeat until you have 16 thin patties. Spoon about a tablespoon or two on 8 patties and spread evenly with the middle having a little more. Top the 8 patties with the stuffing with the remaining 8 patties. Cook however you like. We grilled ours but I have made them in the oven, on a skillet and on cast iron before.
