“A juicy ground sirloin burger seasoned with lots of smoky delights, stuffed with smoked gouda cheese and topped with smoked ham make up this burger that I created for my boyfriend just to say "thanks" for being my recipe guinea-pig! This recipe will make either two 1/2-pound burgers, or three 1/3-pound burgers.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In olive oil, briefly saute ham slices and onion slices together until lightly browned.
  2. Remove and wrap in foil to keep warm in oven.
  3. Mix barbecue sauce, chipotle Tabasco sauce, and Liquid Smoke into ground sirloin.
  4. Separate into 2 or 3 servings, then separate again to make two separate patties per burger.
  5. Layer smoked cheese of choice in the center; cover with"matching" patty and seal edges tightly.
  6. At this point, you can either cook the cheese-stuffed patties in the same skillet used to saute the ham and onions, or throw'em on the grill (mmmmmmm!) For the pan-frying method, it will take about 7 minutes per side for the two burgers (1/2 pound size).
  7. To serve, top each burger with 3 or 4 slices of ham and some onions.
  8. I like to serve with more barbecue sauce and Jack Daniels Hickory Smoke mustard.
