4th of July Bash on the Grill: Mushroom Stuffed Cheeseburgers

Juicy cheeseburgers stuffed with jazzed up mushrooms are on the grill for the 4th of July celebration!  Made with your choice of meat and topped just the way you like it!

Mushroom Stuffed Cheeseburgers

Time to warm up that grill and get to cooking some burgers for the 4th of July!  After a year in lock-down we are so ready to celebrate!  We go for the "All American" menu for our 4th of July bash.  First up is a juicy hamburger.  This one is special because it's has the addition of cheese and mushroom.  But the best part is they are not on it....they are inside it!  Yes, that's right a burger stuffed with jazzed up mushrooms and cheese.  Doesn't get much better than this.

With a little pre-prep of the mushrooms these burgers will be on your table in no time.  Another plus is that you can pick your meat of choice.  We made both beef and turkey burgers.  Toppings can be anything you choose.  We had a standard burger topping bar or lettuce, onion, tomatoes, mayo and mustard.  One bite and the stuffing flavors explode in your mouth!  This is one great burger.

What Ingredients do I need?

  • ground beef sirloin (10%) or ground chicken or turkey
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • ground black pepper
  • provolone cheese
  • baby bella mushrooms
  • garlic
  • white wine
  • butter
  • olive oil
  • Hamburger buns
  • Toppings: lettuce, onion, tomato

Substitutions and Variation

  • Choose a different ground meat, turkey and chicken are great options
  • Choose a different cheese, cheddar, Gouda, or Swiss
  • Don't like mushrooms, leave them out!
  • Don't want wine in the mushrooms? leave it out
  • Kaiser rolls make great buns
  • Brioche buns are a treat
  • Flavor the meat with steak sauce instead of Worcestershire sauce
  • Make this Asian by adding soy sauce and Hosin

Kitchen Tips and Notes

  • Great for making ahead.  Stuff the burgers early in the day and refrigerate until time to grill
  • Kids will love a stuffed cheeseburger!
  • I always form the bottom patty a little larger and then pinch the top to the sides to cover all the stuffing 
  • I always use 10% fat ground sirloin for the flavor.  If you like a juicier burger go for 15 - 20% ground chuck

serves 4

1 lb. ground beef sirloin (10%) or ground chicken or turkey
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 slices provolone cheese, halved
1 cup baby bella mushrooms, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons white wine
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon olive oil
4 Hamburger buns
Toppings:  lettuce, onion, tomato

In a large skillet, medium high heat, add butter and olive oil.  When hot add the mushrooms.  Cook about 1 minutes until starting to brown and wilt.  Add in minced garlic and the wine.  Continue to cook until mushrooms are brown and tender.  Remove from the pan.  

In a large bowl, combine beef, Worcestershire sauce and pepper, very lightly mixing to combine.  Divide the mixture in half and take one half, forming 4 thin patties.  Top 2 of the patties with 1/2 slice of cheese and 1/2 of the cooked mushrooms.  Top with the other two remaining patties and press edges to seal and make sure that the stuffing is all inside.  Repeat with the remaining half of the ground beef to make two more burgers.  

Grill burgers, uncovered, over medium-high heat 5-6 minutes on each side or until a thermometer inserted in meat portion reads 160 degrees.  Toast your hamburgers buns on the grill and serve.
