Sun-Dried Tomato & Goat Cheese Burgers

There’s just something about a burger that’s hard not to love.  They’re filling, they’re delicious, and cavemen would argue – they’re even nutritious.  And speaking from experience, burgers are even harder not to love when they’re filled with sun-dried tomatoes and warm, creamy goat cheese.  Try these out when you’re looking to jazz up the traditional burger a little bit.  Trust me, they are amazing.

Sun-Dried Tomato & Goat Cheese Burgers

  • 1 lb ground beef (I used 80/20)
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tbsp sun-dried tomatoes
  • 4 oz of goat cheese

Mix the egg into the ground beef until they are well-combined and then divide the beef into four equal sized balls.  Flatten the balls into thin patties and place a tbsp of sun-dried tomatoes and 1 oz of goat cheese onto each burger patty.  Using your hands, wrap the patty around the sun-dried tomatoes and goat cheese and make sure to seal the burger well.  Cook the burgers over medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side.  Then remove the pan from the heat, cover it, and let the burgers rest for an additional 5 minutes in order to achieve 4 delicious medium-rare burgers (cook longer if you like them more well-done).  Enjoy!

  1. Ooooh, I LOVE goats cheese. It’s my all-time favourite cheese. In fact I’d probably break these open and suck out the delicious centre 🙂
