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.

Our family would give this one 6 stars if we could. This was perfect recipe for my daughter-in-law Simona for it is an easy recipe to do-ahead. With her busy schedule we prepared the filling and the patties the day before. So on "football day" it was a cinch to put together and hand over to my son Jonathan for grilling while we sauted the mushrooms and got the side dishes ready. I believe the flavors were even better because the flavors mingled all night. Definately a family favorite...sooooo good!

My husband & boys do not care for mushrooms, so I left that part out, but the burger itself, outstanding!!! Will definitely make it again!
