Cheese and Olive Stuffed Burger
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
8 stuffed green olives, coarsely chopped
1/2 (8 ounce) package cold cream cheese, cold
4 hamburger buns
Heat grill, if used. Shape ground beef into eight (4-inch) patties.
Top 4 patties with olives.
Cut cream cheese into 4 cubes.
Flatten each cube into a patty and center one on each olive-topped burger.
Top cheese with remaining patties; press edges together tightly to seal.
Cook in large heavy skillet or on grill over medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes.
Turn patties and cook an additional 4 minutes for medium well or to desired doneness. If patty puffs during cooking, pierce with a wooden pick to release the steam.
Serve on buns with your favorite condiments.
