Mouth-watering cheese-stuffed garlic cheeseburgers filled with garlic, red bell peppers, fresh cilantro, onions, and stuffed with cheese.



  • 1 lb 80/20 ground beef, $2.17
  • 1/3 cup red bell pepper, diced small, $0.33
  • 1/3 cup onion, diced small, $0.20
  • 1/4 cup crushed croutons or dry bread crumbs, $0.25
  • 2 eggs, $0.20
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, rough chop, $0.15
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder, $0.05
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, $0 had on-hand
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper, $0 had on-hand
  • 6-8 thin slices cheese, monetary jack, american, cheddar, pepper jack, etc, $2.25


  • 4 hamburger buns or large lettuce pieces
  • optional toppings, tomato, onion, lettuce, pickle, mayo, mustard, ketchup, etc.


  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix all ingredients except cheese.
  2. Split into 8 equal portions and press into patties.
  3. Add a 1/2 to 1 piece of cheese in the center of 4 patties. Make sure it doesn't hang over the side (you want it to seal).  Encase cheese with second patty.  Seal around edges.
  4. Grill on high heat (450 degrees) for 4-5 minutes per side or until burger reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
  5. Flip over and move to cooler part of grill, then top with slice of cheese. Serve.


If you choose to bake these cheeseburgers, bake at 400 degrees F. for 15-20 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 160°F.  Turn once.  Add cheese 1-2 minutes before pulling out to allow it to melt.
