Mozzarella and Goat Cheese Stuffed Beef Hamburgers

Recently I’ve been craving a hamburger. Not one of those you can get from McDonald’s or even a restaurant, but one I could make on my own and add WHATEVER I wanted to it. Some years ago, I made some cheese stuffed burgers, but it didn’t turn out like I wanted it to. Why? One reason was because I put too much cheese and it was too big a piece to melt all the way while cooking. Another

reason was that I didn’t close the patties correctly. The end result? A messy burger with most of the cheese on the outside! This recipe is anything but messy. Delicious, juicy, and makes you want to make more? Yes. Check it out and I hope you like it.


  • 1 lb. Ground Beef
  • 1/4 – 1/2 inch Cheese (sliced or shredded), I used mozzarella and goat cheese (separately)
  • Salt and Pepper (to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic, minced
  • Cumin (to taste)
  • Thyme (to taste)
  • Olive Oil (t


  1. In a bowl, use your hands to mix the ground beef, salt, pepper, cumin and thyme together.20180529_180018(0)637651892183541984.jpg
  2. Once mixed, don’t over mix, separate ground beef into 2 equal portions (1/2 lb each)
  3. Separate the 1/2 lb portions into 2 even halves (you should have 4 equal portions, 1/4 lb.)20180529_1806001959949509884260130.jpg
  4. Flatten each portion into equal sized patties.
  5. Add cheese, in a single layer, on one of the patties. I used both mozzarella cheese and goat cheese.
  6. Place another patty on top and close the seams by pinching the edges of the patties together until they are closed.
  7. Heat the oil in a frying pan or saute pan ( i used cast iron), on high heat.
  8. Place patties on the lightly oiled pan and cook on both sides for 8-10 minutes.
  9. Place on a hamburger bun, add condiments, and enjoy!
