Stuffed Cheeseburgers

Serves 6
Time 35 min
Beefy burgers stuffed with sautéed onions and bell peppers are ideal for the summer grilling season. Toast the buns on the grill, too, if you like.
Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion finely chopped
  • 1 large green bell pepper finely chopped
  • 3 pounds lean ground beef
  • 2 eggs slightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 6 tablespoons ketchup or chile sauce
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh oregano
  • 6 thick slices sharp Cheddar
  • 6 hamburger buns
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • 6 butter lettuce leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Method

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and pepper and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. In another bowl, combine beef, eggs, Worcestershire, salt and pepper. Mix lightly and shape into 12 thin patties. Spoon onion and pepper mixture onto centers of 6 patties and top each with 2 tablespoons ketchup or chili sauce and a bit of oregano. Cover with remaining patties and pinch the sides securely closed; place in refrigerator until ready to cook.

Prepare a grill for medium heat cooking. Grill burgers until cooked to your desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium. Top with a slice of cheese when you're just about done; cover the grill to melt the cheese. Serve burger on bun with tomatoes, lettuce and the condiments of your choice.
