Stuffed Burgers That Prove It's What's Inside That Counts


Finishing off a burger with a good slice of cheese in the final moments on the grill works, but hold it right there. These totally stuffed burgers prove that burgers are good to their very core when they’re stuffed to the gills with cheese, bacon and more.

Sunny Anderson’s Bacon-, Onion- and Cheese-Stuffed Burger (pictured above) may sound like a mouthful, but these burgers take just 35 minutes to reach your plate. Each smoky-meets-savory patty is fixed up with a mixture of bacon, onion and grated sharp cheddar for max flavor.

It may not look like it at first glance, but Guy Fieri’s burger winner is far from naked. Forget going big with the piled-on toppings. The patty for his Killer Inside-Out Burger with Worcestershire Tomato Ketchup is packed with bacon, chorizo, onions and Swiss cheese before it hits the grilled, then it’s topped off with homemade Worcestershire ketchup before chow time.

Trisha Yearwood’s Cheese-Stuffed Burgers are ideal if you’re grilling for a crowd that digs variety. Stuff each patty with your guest’s go-to cheese, whether it’s pimento, mozzarella or blue cheese, then grill them to ooey-gooey molten perfection.

Ellie Krieger loads up her healthy Stuffed Turkey Burgers with mozzarella and roasted red peppers for a burger that’s gooey and sweetly smoky on the inside.


Smaller in stature, the patties for these Juicy Lucy-fer sliders are formed around a cube of pepper Jack cheese. Once they’re grilled and juicy, top the burgers with spicy, browned onions.

Burgers may be an American classic, but Food Network Magazine’s Manchego-Stuffed Pork Burgers put a Spanish spin on it. With the nutty cheese at the center, these patties are extra flavorful, thanks to pimento-stuffed olives and spices that are blended into the pork.
