The Best Stuffed Hamburger Recipe

Have you ever wondered how to make stuffed hamburgers on the grill? It took me a while before I was able to ketchup with the trend, but then I mustard up the courage to try to make a stuffed hamburger myself. And yes, like you I looked online for instructions on how to make a stuffed hamburger too. I do add my own ingredients which helps the burger stay together better on the grill; see the recipe below.

Stuffed Hamburger Recipe

Making a stuffed hamburger really isn’t all too difficult, the trick is not to be too-too gentle with it. When I first tried to make a stuffed hamburger, I assembled it quite carefully, the trick is just to pinch the edges well and then slap it together with your hands so it doesn’t come apart when you grill it. Pinching the burger edges only gets you so far, slap and shape the burger together with your hands – and don’t be gentle about it!

I like to put shredded Mexican cheese mix and a few pieces of chopped peppers and onions in the center of my stuffed hamburgers. To top my stuffed burgers I like to use a nice crisp iceberg lettuce and tomato which actually goes on the bottom side of the bun to keep the bun from getting soggy, and of course the tasty New Heinz® Yellow Mustard and Heinz Ketchup.

Speaking of soggy buns, the new Heinz Yellow Mustard comes in a bottom squeeze container which means no shaking and no water mess on your bun from that first “oh crap I forgot to shake it” squeeze! It’s also thicker than other mustard, so it doesn’t soak into the bread.

Oh yes, your heard me right, I said Heinz Yellow Mustard! The all new Heinz Yellow Mustard was launched at Walmart in February, and is now in other retailers nationwide. You’ll find it sitting right there next to your all time favorite, Heinz Ketchup. The Heinz Yellow Mustard has a great balance of flavor and tang that is made from 100% natural ingredients – you have to appreciate that!


What do you normally have as a side dish with your burgers? I like grilled asparagus with my burger, but I suppose most people like potato chips – especially when BBQing! For making asparagus, I usually just brush a little oil on them and toss them on the grill until they get a nice char on them. It’s a quick and easy side to have with a nice stuffed burger.

Grill the burger until it’s cooked to your liking. I like mine medium to medium-well which is about 168 degrees or better. For our particular grill it’s 6 to 7 minutes per side, your grill may be different.
