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.

Jalapeno Cilantro Pork Burger

We made some tasty pork burgers tonight.  Usually we go for the simple unseasoned version but today we added some great ingredients to the pork before cooking.

  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/4 cup diced jalapeno
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp chili powder

Mix together all ingredients and form into 4 patties.  These would be awesome grilled but it was late and cold tonight so I opted for a simple pan cooking.  It took about 10 minutes over medium heat; cook until pork is no longer pink in the center.

We served ours with guacamole, red onion, and lettuce… yummy!
