I’m never one to miss an opportunity to share a meal. You guys are well aware of some of my failures so this may come as a shock, but Mr. Yum didn’t want me to post this. Stuffed veal burgers were going to be his return to YUM but he felt they were not up to par with his other dishes. Ok. Fine. I can understand that. But darn it, if he won’t post them, I will!
We are grillers. Nothing makes me happier than goodies char broiled to my specific tastes and I won’t miss an opportunity to do so. Bring on Fall. Bring on Winter. It doesn’t stop us from grilling outside! Oh yes, we’ve been known to grill a time or two in the middle of winter.
I’ve been wanting to make some stuffed burgers for a while. It’s always been easy for me to just make patties, put the goodies in the middle, put another patty on top and pinch them close. I mean, that’s how my mom has been making them my whole life. However, hubs wasn’t having it. He went shopping with his dad and came home with a stuffed burger maker. Oh yeah. He’s one of those people. Buys all these kitchen gadgets, uses them once and then they collect a such a thick layer of dust they could be deemed hazardous.
He started making patties by using a biscuit cutter. He said he wanted to make sure the patties were all perfect and even 😉
When I moved in with hubs 6 years ago he had 3 cabinets that were full of these trinkets. Egg poachers, microwaveable omelet maker, microwaveable bacon crisper, and tons of other plastic toys that promptly went in our first garage sale. He has a problem. 😉
You don’t have to use veal. You can use turkey, beef, pork and even chicken. Veal was on clearance so that was our reason of choice. The seasonings mixed well and the melted cheese inside was a nice creamy surprise.
I added a bit of avocado to mine. You can make this low carb by removing the bun and adding extra lettuce.
Just be sure you don’t over char them like hubs did 😉 Despite that, they actually still tasted really good.
You can pan fry or oven broil these stuffed veal burgers for similar results.

OMG! Those sound absolutely amazing. We are big grillers at our house too. Even if it’s cold outside, we still grill.
These look- and sound- really good! I think I would do them without the bun so I could get all the flavor!
Liz Mays says
See now I actually LOVE them charred like that. In fact, I prefer them that way. They look sooooo good!

So that red kitchen tool, is that one of those as seen on tv burger stuffers? I keep seeing that gadget and contemplate each time.

These sound really good I like veal. I have wondered how well the stuffed burger maker worked. I have seen it on TV.

I love to grill. This looks like a delicious dish to try. I might try it this weekend.
These look amazing! I have never made veal burgers before.
I don’t think I have ever eaten veal, let alone cooked with it. This looks really good.
Tiffany (A Mom's Take) says
Those look really good. And I like that little mold you have to make them with.
I have never had veal before, but those burgers look so good! I love the addition of the avocado!
Estelle Erasmus says
I love the idea of using a biscuit cutter to make the patties. We mainly grill in the summer, and it’s mostly steaks, hamburgers and hot dogs. I also like adding a slice of avocado to, well, everything.
Krystal's Kitsch says
I can’t remember having veal! It sounds so good like this in a burger.
I don’t think I have ever had veal burgers. they seem really good

I’m not a big fan of veal. The stuffed burger does look tasty.
I don’t think I’ve ever made a veal burger. I’m going to ask hubby if he’d like to try it.

I was just thinking about trying a new burger recipe. I’ll have to try this one.

I want these for dinner. I never thought to use veal…
Rena McDaniel says
They look delicious but believe it or not I have never tried veal in my life and I am 44! I don’t know why it just isn’t something that is around very much. I might check it out at the grocery store, I’ve never even seen it before. I am very curious now though!
Kristen from The Road to Domestication says
Ooo…I think I’ll try these with chicken – sounds so yummy! Thanks for sharing!
I love grilling burgers! And I actually love stuffing chicken with cheese (and baking it.) I’ve not tried stuffing anything and grilling it, though. These look really good (despite being a bit charred!)
Alice Chase says
I love topping my burgers with avocado. This sounds like such a good burger
Angela S says
I like them charred just like that, and that bit of Avocado on top is perfect. Great recipe!
Lois Alter Mark says
Those look amazing and are tempting me to grill tonight! I love burgers of all kinds!
This looks like a delicious recipe. I love grilled food. Burgers especially.
Jessica (Savory Experiments) says
Did you say cheese stuffed??? I’m totally in! They looks magnificent!
Lori T. says
We are grillers for sure and we too are known to bust out some grilled dishes during the freezing season. My favorite thing to grill are veggies, but nothing beats a grilled piece of seafood. I’m not picky about what kind it is as long as it’s grilled and seasoned to perfection. Honestly, I’ve been a little afraid to purchase ground veal because I’m not sure I can do it the justice it deserves, but you’ve inspired me and I can’t wait to try these veal burgers out.
Those look delicious. Thanks for the recipe.
Yum, those burgers look delicious! I could use one after the drinks I’ve had after the Giants’ win 😛
Sarah Bailey says
I have to admit I don’t eat veal but I love the idea of stuffed burgers – I’ll have to give it a whirl with a different meat 🙂 x
Amber Nelson says
That actually looks really good. I’m not a huge veal fan, but this might change my mind.
Never had a veal burger before but it looks good.
I love how these look! I need to taste them one day.
Ann Bacciaglia says
I think these burgers look fantastic i can not wait to try them. I love to grill steak and chicken.
Erica Brooks says
I’ve had veal but not as a burger. Looks like something I would enjoy.
Those look super tasty. I can honestly say that I have never had a veal burger before but I want to try one now.
These look great! I love cheesy stuffed things!
Melissa Vera says
Although I don’t eat veal I will have to say that this recipe looks absolutely yummy. I will share it with some of friends who love veal.
What a great combination of spices. I bet the turmeric in it is fantastic.
Thanks for sharing on Tasty Tuesdays.
