Stuffed Hamburgers with Tillamook Cheese!

**Tillamook sent me a gift box so I could share a grilled burger recipe! All opinions are my own.**

As summer is creeping up on us and the weather is getting nicer, I thought it would be fun to share one of my favorite burger recipes!!! I guess it’s really not my idea, but rather my dad’s…does that shock you?! I’m telling y’all, I was spoiled growing up with all the meals he made/invented. Anyway, I was so excited when Tillamook Cheese contacted me about sending a gift box with their cheese in it. They are SO fun!

So with the yummy cheese they provided I set out to make our mouth watering stuffed hamburgers. Boy they were amazing.

I’m telling you, doesn’t picture make you want to fire up the grill and get started?! Well let’s get to business.

Here’s what you’ll need:

* Thin large hamburger patties (we made 4 burgers so we needed 8 patties)
*Tillamook sliced cheese
*hamburger buns
*shredded cheese
*cream cheese
*bacon chunks
*seasoning salt & garlic powder (not pictured)

We made two types of burgers; one regular stuffed and then one kicked up a notch with a little heat. 😉 We’re in Texas, what else could you expect?!

For the spicy “Texas” option you’ll combine cream cheese, shredded cheese, jalapenos, chives,and bacon. If I were you, I’d also add a shot or two of Texas Pete (or your favorite hot sauce) to the mix. We were out of that so I didn’t use it. Bummer!

Then for the regular, yet still very yummy, stuffed version combine cream cheese, shredded cheese, bacon, and chives together.

Really the beauty of these burgers is that you can stuff them with whatever you want.

Maybe you want to add mushrooms or olives…have at it!

Make them your own!

Add a dollop of your desired “stuffing” mixture to the center of a thin hamburger patty.

Then place another patty on top and pinch the two patties together. Once you have the edges pinched, I sort of shaped the burger again so it looked like a nice plump patty. Make sure you keep your burgers in order so you don’t forget who has which stuffed version. If my husband had the “Texas” version, he might die, ha!

Next sprinkle seasoning salt and garlic powder on both sides of your patties.

Then grill those babies!

 Once your burgers are almost done, place your Tillamook cheese on top so it can melt. Yummy!

We also lightly coated the buns with butter and flash grilled them.

That way they were crisp and warm.

It’s time to plate those babies up.

      How long do the burgers stuffed with cream cheese last? How long can you refrigerate them without spoiling??
