These stuffed hamburgers reach new levels of grilled awesomeness with some fresh tomatoes and peppers mixed with olives and feta cheese. Go shopping in your garden (or your local farmer’s market) to add some bright summer flavors to your burger grilling this week!
For a Paleo option leave out the feta cheese.
I recently got a spanking new grill that just had to be tested out. It’s a little weber gas grill, and though many say that charcoal grilling makes for better flavor (and I think I agree with them), a little grill like mine is quicker, more portable, and just plain easier to use and clean. Perfect to shove in the back of a pickup and take anywhere. We have a slightly less awesome (read: destructable) grill that is equally portable up on the range this year. That little grill has been packed on horseback from one camp to the next and used to cook countless sausages and burgers. Pan-fried meat tastes good, but nothing beats the flavor you’ll get from a good grillfest.
The new weber passed with flying colors making these stuffed hamburgers with feta cheese, olives, and fresh tomatoes and green peppers. I think with burgers like these we’ll be grilling year round.
