Gramps Cheezy Stuffed Uptown Burgers
Over the last several years we were trying to create the best burger that the whole family would enjoy. These are the results and we would like to share them in everyone.
2.5 pounds ground sirloin 90/10
1/2 pound ground pork
1/2 cup Vidalia or sweet onions, chopped
1/2 cup Sutter Home Merlot
3 tablespoons Montreal Steak Seansoning
1/4 cup worchestershire sauce
8 ounces grated sharp cheddar cheese
2 ounces bleu cheese crumbles
2 roma tomatoes, chopped
1 avocado sliced thin
6 Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns
4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
3 Slices of Vidalia or sweet onions
In a large bowl gently mix 2.5 pounds ground sirloin, 1/2 pound ground pork, 1/2 cup vidalia or sweet onions chopped, 1/2 cup Sutter home Merlot, 3 Tablespoons Montreal Steak Seasoning, and 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce. Let ingredients sit in refrigerator for one hour.
Heat a large sautÃ© pan over low heat. Cook 3 slices of onions in 4 tablespoons of olive oil over low heat for 35 minutes. Separate onion rings. Season with salt and pepper, and Â½ cup Sutter Home Merlot, increase heat to medium and simmer for 3 minutes.
Chop 2 roma tomatoes, reserve.
Cut avocado in half, remove pit. Slice each half into 6 equal slices. Use a spoon to gently remove slices, reserve.
Divide meat into 12 equal parts. Form into a loose ball, and create 4 inch patties. Reserve 6 patties. For other six patties, pinch edges of patties and push down in middle with your thumb to form hollowed (pie shell style) center. Fill each hollowed patty with 2 teaspoons of shredded cheddar and 1 teaspoon of blue cheese crumbles. Cover filled patties with reserved patties and gently seal edges together so burgers are seamless.
Grill burgers at 325 degrees for 6 1/2 minutes on each side. Do not press down on burgers while cooking.
Split, butter and toast 6 hamburger buns on grill for 2 minutes, do not allow to burn.
Put mayonnaise on both parts of hamburger bun. Place burger on bun. Top with caramelized onions, chopped roma tomatoes, two slices of avocado, crossed.
Recipe makes 6 â€“ 1/2 pound burgers.
Eat and enjoy with a glass of Sutter Home Merlot!
