Habanero stuffed burgers

Stuffed with extra sharp cheddar, crumbles of parmesian, and sections of the habanero pepper.  I hope I survive...

    I'm curious too Dave. Did you, in fact, survive?

  • That sounds so good and so painful! I love it! Any pics of the interior after cook?

  • I have the burgers frozen for next week lunches.  I will take pictures of the cross section then.  While I was making the burgers I had a bit of the pepper with a piece of cheese.  Not spectacularly hot but that was a small piece.

  • I decided to thaw out one and try it today (the next day!).  I was worried about the amount of fat smoke that these thick burgers were smoke in, in addition to the mesquite and hickory chips I used.  Yesterday, prior to cooking these four burgers, I had cooked 8 lean grassfed hamburger patties from a farmers co-op.  Mesquite smoke, and very little meat fat burning.  But when I put these Publix ground beef thick patties on the grill, by the time they were ready to pull, the meat smoke predominated.,  So rather than wait till next week to see if I would have to discard them, I thawed and reheated one.  I was pleasantly surprised, there was plenty of good smoke flavor and no significant meat fat smoke flavor.  I was somewhat disappointed however by the fact that the habanero taste and heat was way in the background.  This time I had made each burger with half of the pepper.  Next time each one gets a whole pepper!

  • Very nice! I would take a sample bite of the pepper before putting a whole per burger. A good habanero should light you up! The next ones you get may be much more pungent.

    Next time a small drop of Dave's Ghost pepper sauce in your ground beef and mix it up.

    Ghost pepper! I saw these at the market the other day, for the first time, and they included tongs for you to put in the bag. Really that hot? Are they flavorful like habanaro?
