Herb & Cheese Stuffed Burgers

I know what you are thinking, who needs a recipe for a hamburger?!  Am I right?  I know, I get it.  I am generally not one to pull out a recipe for a hamburger.  Just like everyone else, I pull the meat out of the fridge, form some patties, sprinkle them with salt and pepper, and top them with a slice of cheese...good to go.  And as delicious as a plain old hamburger is in it's own right, these little babies are a good way to go as well.  With only slightly more work involved than the old regular burger, you can instead, have this tasty version, stuffed with a creamy cheddar and cream cheese mixture.  And thanks to the rosemary and sage, there are little pops of unexpected flavor throughout.  So if you are tired of the same-old, same-old, go ahead and give these a try!

Herb & Cheese Stuffed Burgers

1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 Tablespoon cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoon dried parsley
3 teaspoon Dijon mustard, divided
2 green onions, thinly sliced
3 Tablespoon dry bread crumbs
2 Tablespoon ketchup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1/4 teaspoon dried sage leaves (I used rubbed sage and it worked great)
1 pound lean ground beef
4 hard rolls, split (I used hamburger buns, and though they worked good, I will try hard rolls next time)
Lettuce leaves, tomato slices optional

In a small bowl, combine cheddar cheese, cream cheese, parsley and 1 teaspoon mustard.  Set aside.
In another bowl, combine the onions, bread crumbs, ketchup, salt, rosemary, sage and remaining mustard.  Crumble beef over mixture and mix well.  Shape into eight thin patties.  Spoon cheese mixture onto the center of four patties and top with remaining patties and press edges firmly to seal.
Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 inches from heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees and juices run clear.  Serve burgers on rolls or buns, with lettuce and tomato if desired.
