These are the best burgers I've ever had. My mother made a version of these and I changed it a little. Instead of jalapeno peppers you can add anything or just do the cream cheese. Trust me, your family and/or guests will beg for the recipe! Serve on buns with your favorite toppings.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat a grill for medium heat. When hot, lightly oil the grate.

  • Stir together jalapenos and cream cheese in a small bowl.

  • Divide ground beef into 16 portions. Pat out each one to a thickness of 1/4 inch.

  • Spoon some cream cheese mixture onto the center of 1/2 of the patties. Top with the remaining patties, and press the edges together to seal.

  • Cook on the preheated grill until well done, about 10 minutes per side. Don't press down on the burgers as they cook, or the cheese will ooze out.
