Cheese Stuffed Burger Dogs


Makes 4 servings

1 pound ground meat, I used ground pork
4 chunk strips of your favorite cheese

Preheat grill

I mixed my ground pork with a bit of adobo, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce

Divide into 4 portions

Flatten into long patties that the cheese will fit into


Form the meat around the cheese

Gently roll back and forth and pat the ends shut till you have a nice formed roll with all the cheese tucked inside


Slowly grill over low heat, our grill temp was at 350 degrees

Grill around 8 sides about 2-3 minutes per side


You have to grill slowly so the cheese does not melt out

Internal temperature should reach 165 degrees

We used a meat thermometer in the end of the burger dog where there was no cheese to check the temperature


Enjoy with your favorite toppings!
