Mozzarella Beef Burgers by Jen

2 lb. ground beef
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup barbecue sauce, divided
8 hamburger buns

Mix meat, cheese, bread crumbs and 2 Tbsp. of the barbecue sauce. Shape into patties.  Wrap each burger in parchment paper or wax paper separately then place in gallon Ziploc bag before freezing for easy storage and serving.

Serving Day:
Thaw.  Preheat grill to medium-high heat.  Remove parchment paper, then place patties on grill; cover grill with lid. Grill 4 to 6 min. on each side or until burgers are cooked through (160°F), brushing with remaining 2 Tbsp. barbecue sauce during last 2 min. of grilling time. Fill buns with burgers and lettuce, if desired.


  1. These were good, but had a hard time grilling them without burning.

  2. Cook these burgers on the grill on indirect heat. They were 85/15 lean meat. I like to buy meat with a little extra fat in it for burgers (it makes them extra juicy and flavorful)

    Here are a few backyard BBQ tips on grilling burgers:
    •Make sure the grill is the appropriate temperature Medium-low to medium heat is best. Too hot, and burgers burn on the outside before getting done on the inside. Keep the lid closed while cooking; it shortens cooking time and keeps burgers moist.

    •Use beef that is no leaner than 85% A little fat keeps burgers moist and flavorful. For ground chicken and turkey, add a little olive oil or broth to the mixture.

    •Always clean and oil the grill grate This prevents burgers from sticking, extends the life of your grate, and helps put those beautiful grill marks on your patties.

    •Cook burgers properly: cook ground beef to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F (170 degrees F for poultry). For an accurate reading, insert the thermometer into the patty horizontally

  3. These were very good and tasty. My husband still added extra cheese. We cooked ours on the grill. Yes, it was kind of greasy and flame broiled, but it didn't keep us from eating them.

  4. I had no problem grilling them. I liked the flavor and the cheese in them, but think I would have liked it with a little less bread crumbs.
