Stuffed Burger Success!

Thanks for all the great feedback on my stuffed burger question.  Tonight I fixed the best burgers I've ever made by a long stretch.  BGE has once again proven it's worth the price of admission!


Got some 80/20 and stuffed with fresh mozzarella, basil, tomato, and parsley, then covered with cracked pepper and sea salt.  On a 425 degree egg for about 7-8 minutes per side, then served on a toasted bun with pickles, ketchup, mustard, and lettuce with olive oil potato chips and mixed salad.  Fantastic meal!  Pictures below (including a blurry one of the preparation.  The orange thing on the grill is a veggie burger for my daughter).

    Looks like they turned out great!  A well executed plan for sure.

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Thanks all.  @SmokinDAWG82 - that's a veggie burger (for my daughter) that snuck onto the Egg in an attempt to healthify all my tasty red meat.

    Ha - good catch! That was to remind me which two didn't have tomato - son is not a fan of 'maters (not sure if I can really claim him because of it)
