For the Burgers
-4 oz. cream cheese, softened
-1/2 cup shredded cheddar
-1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
-2 jalapeños, minced
-freshly ground black pepper
-6 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
-1/2 tbsp. chili powder
-1 1/2 angus ground beef
-4 burger buns
Prepare & cook the Burgers
1) Make filling: In a medium bowl, mix together cream cheese, cheddar, mozzarella, and jalapeños. Season with salt and pepper, then fold in cooked bacon.
2) Form ground beef into 8 large, thin rounds (about ¼”). Spoon about ¼ cup of filling mixture onto one patty, then place a second patty on top. Pinch edges to seal burger and re-shape into a disc if necessary. Repeat with remaining patties and filling mixture.
3) Preheat grill to medium-high. Season burgers on both sides with chili powder, salt, and pepper. Place on grill and cook until cooked through to your liking, about 6 minutes per side for medium.
4) Sandwich with burger buns and serve immediately!
