These Stuffed Cheeseburgers dripping with melted cheese, from the center are truly a cheeseburger lovers' dream.

Using good-tasting "real" cheese is key to this oozing burger that makes them over the top in juicy flavor and they smell fabulous cooking.

The truth is, I have seen these before but they seemed so hard to make so I passed on trying them every time, but to my surprise, they're super simple.

The photos and the instructions will make you run into your kitchen to try these burgers stuffed with cheese.

They can be grilled, pan-fried, sauteed on the stovetop, air-fried, or even baked in the oven, any way you cook them they are the best ever burgers.

Stuffing Burgers

These burgers are super easy to make, just stuff them with whatever cheese you like however make sure they easily melt.

I really love super-sharp cheeses like cheddar or a hardy flavor like blue cheese but they all work great.

The best part about the burgers is bitting into all the oozing cheese so don't be afraid to pack them in the middle.

There are so many toppings, I hope I listed enough but these really taste great plain since the meat is seasoned perfectly.

If you prefer your burger rare please make sure you use an instant-read meat thermometer to ensure the correct temperature is achieved.

Tips and Suggestions

  • Form the patties so that they are larger in circumference than the bun you plan to use. They will shrink as they cook.
  • Burgers can be frozen after forming and best-cooked cold
  • The patties need to be thin you will need top and bottom and formed on wax paper or parchment
  • Salt the patties before cooking, do not add them to the mixture
  • The meat should be 145 for medium internal temperature 5 minutes on each side we cook ours at 155 internal temperature for 7 to 8 minutes for medium-well refer to a meat thermometer
  • Grill, Air fry on foil oil sprayed, bake on a grided cast iron skillet or broil
  • Top with crispy bacon, tomato, lettuce, grilled mushrooms, and grilled or raw onion if preferred
  • For condiments, mustard, ketchup, and mayo combinations are our favorite toppings
  • If you love spicy hot add hot sauce on top with blue cheese dressing
  • Burgers are best tasting the first day when made
  • Pickles, jalapeno, or regular peppers are also options for topping
  • Try a California Style Burger by topping with guacamole 
  • The cheeses we use is extra sharp cheddar, try pepper jack, swiss, blue cheese crumbles, gouda, Havarti, provolone, mozzarella, or whatever kind you prefer
  • Top your burger with a fried egg
  • Any hamburger rolls can be buttered and toasted or use garlic bread

Super Juicy Burgers

Making a super juicy burger is really easy as this one, just by a few simple tricks.

Surprisingly, I actually like to use relatively lean ground beef (90/10 or 85/15) for making the best juicy burgers.

With this juicy burger recipe, you’d never guess they are so darn lean.

Mixing olive oil and Worcestershire sauce into the meat prior to cooking locks in the moisture.

Now you know everything there is to know on how to make the best-stuffed cheeseburgers on the planet so let's get cooking!

If you want the best recipe for a stuffed cheeseburger this is it no contest.
