Cheesy Stuffed Grilled Veal Burgers

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.

For this recipe we became dashers. Meaning, there are no set amounts. A few dashes of this and that. I suggest mixing the dry seasonings in a small container and mix with a fork. Then take a taste to see if its to your liking. Remember it will thin out a bit when mixed with the meat but this will give you a general idea on whether or not you should add something else.

  1. OMG! Those sound absolutely amazing. We are big grillers at our house too. Even if it’s cold outside, we still grill.

  2. 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 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.

    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!

    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!)

  6. 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.

    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
