Betty’s Cheese and Onion Stuffed Hamburgers Recipe

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make her Cheese and Onion Stuffed Hamburgers. These consist of 2 thin ground beef patties with American cheese and sauteed onion sealed between them. Perfect for a casual lunch or supper! Ingredients: (for 1 hamburger) 6 oz. lean ground beef instant seasoned meat tenderized, to taste (No MSG) seasoned pepper, to taste 1/4 onion, chopped and sauteed 1/2 slice Deluxe American cheese (You may substitute another type of sliced cheese, if desired.) 1 hamburger bun (I used a wheat Kaiser roll.) mayonnaise for dressing, if desired lettuce leaves, if desired tomato slices, if desired Flatten (2) 3 oz. chunks of ground beef into a 2 large, thin hamburger patties. Use meat tenderizer and seasoned pepper, to taste, on each of the top sides. Now, on one of the top sides, place a square of American cheese (1/2 of a half-slice). On top of that place a teaspoon of sauteed onions. Repeat, by placing another square on cheese and another 1/2 teaspoon of sauteed onions on top. Now, place the other large, flat hamburger patty on top of the first patty (containing the cheese), seasoned side down. Crimp the 2 patties together around the outer edge to seal them tightly into one large stuffed hamburger patty. Grill on an outdoor or kitchen grill–or you may fry these in a skillet. Drain on a paper towel, and place on a serving plate. Serve the Cheese and Onion Stuffed Hamburger on a wheat Kaiser roll, with mayonnaise, lettuce leaves, and tomato slices for

  1. That looks Great! Would stuffing some shredded bacon in there work too?

  2. @stardog1982 Adding the (cooked) bacon sounds wonderful!

  3. yummmmmmmmmmmy

  4. i just wanted to tell you i love all your cooking videos there very good i am thinking of making your devil eggs for my mother in laws birthday.

  5. That is truly a delicious and wonderful sounding meal! The only question I have, is – why meat tenderizer? I’ve never heard of using tenderizer as a flavor enhancer. Most burger recipes just do salt and pepper. Anyway, thanks for a great meal idea, and I think I shall subscribe to your videos!

  6. @TheCartoonChef Salt and pepper will be fine. I use meat tenderizer on some meats, just to make them tender and juicy. I always use the kind with no msg. It takes the place of salt, but it does not add any additional flavor, just tenderness.

  11. mmm. fruit salad looked amazing. except for the splenda, haha

  12. @stankyherbz101 Yeah, each person has to choose their own way of sweetening fruit. I usually demonstrate with sugar, and just mention sweetener as an option, but in my own life I would never sweeten with sugar.

  15. How come you’d never sweeten with sugar? Should I?

  16. @CameronHotspurs I like to avoid the calories, but if you’re not watching calories, sugar is fine.
