Jalapeno Popper Burgers

Picture this:  A big juice hamburger stuff with cream cheese and fresh jalapenos on a potato roll and topped with a slice of cheddar cheese.  

Okay, you can stop drooling now.

Jalapeno Popper Burgers

1 cups seeded and chopped jalapeno pepper
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 pound ground beef
4 potato rolls, split
4 slices cheddar cheese

Preheat a grill for medium heat (I use a George Foreman Grill).  When hot, lightly oil the grate. 

In a food processor, quickly pulse together jalapenos and cream cheese.

Divide the ground beef into 8 portions and pat out each one to 1/4 inch thickness. Spoon some of the cream cheese mixture onto the center of 4 of the patties. 

Top with the remaining patties, pressing the edges together to seal.

Grill for about 10 minutes per side, or until well done, taking care not to press down on the burgers as they cook. This will make the cheese ooze out. 

Serve on buns and top with cheddar cheese.  Add whatever other toppings you like.
