    Delicious! I didn't have cream cheese so I substituted sharp cheddar, and I cooked up some fresh bacon in place of the bacon bits. To make it even easier, I chopped up the mushrooms, sauteed them in the bacon grease, and added them right in with the filling! We'll be making these burgers frequently this summer, I'm sure. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    I was surprised my guys liked these. I will make them again though it is pretty rich in fat. It look a lot of burger and the filling was way to much for the four of us so I cut it back a bit (1/2 a package of cream cheese and 1/2 of everything else) We left out the mushrooms and went with grilled onions on top. I wonder how these would be in meatballs with the filling? Also since it was Dec and we in in Oregon we did them in a skillet not on the grill. I had a hard time keeping them from sliding apart in the skillet I can't imagine the grill..

    This was good but because we have to watch our fat intake this is not something I would go out of my way to make again.

    Yum! I didn't add the sauteed mushrooms, but these were definitely a hit!

    My son and husband love this recipe. It is very rich and delicious. I like to add sauteed onions with the mushrooms.
