Best Stuffed Burger Ideas

While stuffed burgers have become more creative over the years, with versions such as Meat Lover’s Stuffed Pizza Burgers, and Tomato Basil Stuffed Burgers, they go back as far as the 1950’s with the “original” stuffed burger called the “Juicy Lucy,” which is when cheese was added inside the burger rather than on top.

There is also some debate across the internet as to what defines a stuffed burger.

Some say a cheesy filling has to be oozing from the center, while others state that if the burger mixture itself has stir-ins, it is considered stuffed. A good example of that kind of stuffed burger is the Pesto Mozzarella Burger, where pesto is stirred into the meat before the patties are formed.
