This is a lil recipe for homemade cream cheese burgers! I give credit to my husband’s family of which more than half of my cooking repertoire is based on.
2 lb ground meat
1 green pepper
1 pckg of Cream Cheese (block)
Your seasoning of choice for meat
( I use adobo, minced garlic, black pepper, dash of sazon)
Mince the onion and pepper. Season the meat and work in the onion and pepper. After prepping the meat divide into 16 golf size balls and pat out each one to 1/4 inch thickness. Make sure the patties are bigger than the bun, those sucker shrink right up in the pan. Spoon some of the cream cheese mixture onto the center of 8 of the patties. Top with the remaining patties, pressing the edges together to seal and shape them into burger patties. Don’t squish it down!
Grill ’em making sure to flip them often. As the patties shrink if left on either side for too long it will make one shrink pulling the patties apart. (I leave then length of time up to you, I usually cook them for about 15-18 min- paranoid of leaving it uncooked and all). Again don’t press down on the burgers as they cook. This will make the cream cheese ooze out!
