"We just grilled these hamburgers last night. All 3 boys, my husband and I all want to eat them again! Having so many eating I used ground turkey and ground beef mixed together to make the burgers. Then instead of adding all the spices to the hamburger mixture I just added 2 teaspoons of Montreal Steak Spices from McCormick. (if you haven't used this on your steaks, you are really missing out!) The only thing we realized is that we needed bigger buns than just regular hamburger buns! We also did not have them fall apart on the grill but had read the review and were more aware of it. Otherwise, I totally recommend these hamburgers. The little bit of extra work was well worth it."

"Just finished tossin' a couple of these bad boys- delicious! They didn't stay "sealed," so when I flipped 'em they started to ooze a bit (think I spooned the cheese too close to the edges) Oh well, grill needs cleaning anyway- it was worth it.

I think next time I will just spread the cream cheese & mustard on the buns, and top the herb-flavored burgers with sliced cheddar. Same flavors without the mess or fuss of stuffed burgers. And definitely going to add a little garlic"

"These burgers are excellent! So many tangy flavors. The Dijon mustard adds a somewhat mysterious taste--it's there and it's good, but I don't think I'd necessarily know what it was if I hadn't put the burgers together. The stuffing melted perfectly and the meat was very flavorful and juicy. I was out of sage, so I used 1/2 t. of thyme instead. This is definitely a part of my summer grilling repertoire from now on. Thanks for this great recipe!!"

"My boyfriend and I made these burgers tonight and they were amazing. I love burgers but don't eat them at fast food or dine in restaurants because my family has a history of heart disease and high cholesterol, so I consciously try to make an effort not to eat them unless they are home cooked on the grill. I was amazed at the great flavor that the herbs gave the burgers and loved the cheesy surprise that was inside. they were very simple and easy to make with quick clean up and even with a long list of ingredients, are made with things most everyone should have in the house already. I will definitely make these again and recommend these to anyone who loves burgers!"
