I'm obsessed with kitchen gadgets and I have a basement full of them to prove it. Some of them are amazing and I use them all the time and some of them are sitting down there collecting dust. I have special brownie cutters, blooming onion makers, ravioli molds, apple bakers, mini pie makers.. just to name a few. The other day while in T. J Maxx's I found this cool hamburger mold which allows you to stuff your burgers with whatever your heart delights. Of course I had to have it especially since it was only $4.99.
It's pretty easy to use but the only problem is that you have to use 3/4 lb of meat for each burger and it takes about 30 minutes to cook on the grille.
The burgers did come out great but they're just to darn big. I stuffed them with sauteed mushrooms, sauteed onions and thick sliced sharp cheddar cheese. I guess you can always cut one burger in half if the giant one is too intimidating. I told my husband that he and I should split one, "no way" was his reply. He had no problem eating his entire burger and he'll be eating my other half for lunch tomorrow.
|The bottom piece isn't attached so you push up from the bottom to remove the burger.|
|Add your 1/2 lb of meat.|
|You press the top and it creates the hole to fill.|
|There's the hole.|
|Fill it with your goodies.|
|Top with another 1/4 lb of meat.|
|Here are the onions and mushrooms that I stuffed it with.|
