I rarely eat red meat. I rarely eat meat at all for that matter, but for the past several years red meat has made my stomach hurt. Sure I enjoy the taste, but I usually regret the consequences. Last night when I discovered that I was out of Boca Burgers I decided to try my hand at a stuffed burger. The burger turned out great and for once it didn’t bother my stomach either! This burger is deliciously tangy, with a “surprise” in the middle! If you like burgers, you’ll LOVE this one…Try it!
What You’ll Need for the Stuffed Mushroom and Irish Cheddar Burger:
2 pounds of lean ground beef
1 packet of onion soup mix
1/2 cup of A1 Steak Sauce
4 ounces of Kerrygold Aged Cheddar, cut into small slices (Or any cheddar will do, I just particularly like the Kerrygold variety!)
8 small button mushrooms, sliced
Mix beef, soup mix and steak sauce until fully incorporated and form into 4 patties and then follow the directions below.
First, make each patty into a “nest”:
Next line your “nest” with cheddar:
Now add a layer of mushrooms over the cheese:
Form patty over the center ingredients to seal in the cheese and mushrooms:
Cook the burgers over medium heat to your specifications. I like mine medium well to well done. (Or about 10 minutes for that level of doneness.)
And inside you have a yummy “surprise”!
Top burger with condiments of your choice and enjoy!
Makes 4 burgers.
What You’ll Need for the Cajun Oven Fries:
2 large russet potatoes, cut into strips
Extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt (Note: The Cajun seasoning I use does NOT have added salt. If you are using a brand that does, then omit the salt)
Preheat oven to 425 F.
Toss potatoes with a little olive oil and sprinkle Cajun seasoning over them and a little sea salt. Bake for 15-20 minutes until done through and slightly crispy.
Makes 4 servings.
