These are much more fun and flavorful than plain old burgers. Feel free to play with the stuffing ingredients — add some minced jalapeño peppers for extra Cajun kick.

  • 2 lbs. ground chuck
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 Cup barbecue sauce


  • 1/4 Cup green bell pepper, minced
  • 1/2 Cup white onion, minced
  • 11/2 Cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 can mushrooms, minced
  • 6 slices bacon, fried and chopped

Start your coals or gas grill. You will want the coals nice and hot. While the coals are heating, fry the bacon, drain it on paper toweling, chop it, and set it aside. In a roomy bowl, combine the ground chuck, egg, barbecue sauce, and CAJUN SEASONING. Mix well–using your hands works best. Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions. Form and flatten into 12 round patties about 1/2 inch thick. Mix together the stuffing ingredients. Place 2 heaping TB. of stuffing into the center of 6 of the burger patties, leaving a 1/2 inch border to pinch the edges shut. Place a second patty over the bottom patties and press the edges together. Make sure the edges are pinched tight, so the stuffing doesn’t come out. At this point the coals should be ready. Place the burgers on the hot grill. Grill for 8 minutes on the first side, flip and grill the second side for about 5 more minutes for a medium-well burger.
