Stuffed Pork Burgers

I decided to stuff my pork burgers tonight with a bit of goat cheese.  It was quite tasty; so much so that my mind was reeling with other ideas for stuffing; blue cheese, cheddar, bacon, jalapeno to name a few.

  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 4 o.z. soft goat cheese or any kind of cheese
  • salt and pepper and a bit of cayenne if desired

Take about 1/8 pound of the pork and make a thin patty.  Crumble about 1 o.z. of the goat cheese on top.

Top with another 1/8 pound of pork.

Cook as desired.  I went with a skillet tonight as it was dark and cold out; it took about 12 – 15  minutes over medium heat. A grill would work nicely too.

Portobello Mushroom Burgers

I decided to make a Portobello burger today; something I’d never tried but it just sounded delicious.  My original intent was to grill them but I got busy and then had to hurry so this skillet version worked wonderfully.  Just about 5 minutes cook time was all it took.  Charles loved the Brie Cheese and its earthy flavor I liked it too, but I must confess I put cheddar on my second one.  I used the little slider buns the local grocery sells and the size was perfect.

Portobello Mushroom Burgers

  • 2 medium Portobello mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons butter or olive oil
  • 1/4 small onion
  • salt, pepper, garlic powder
  • 4 small / slider buns
  • Brie cheese
  • lettuce
  • tomato

In medium skillet melt butter. Slice mushrooms in half horizontally.

Place each mushroom half in skillet.  Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder if desired.  Cook 3 minutes; flip over add onion slices to skillet.  Continue cooking about 2 more minutes or until mushroom is desired tenderness.  Flip mushrooms over and top with Brie slices.  Serve on buns with lettuce and tomato or your favorite toppings.
