When you tire of the usual tried and true burger fixings, a pinch of imagination provides some alternate possibilities. Pepper-Stuffed Beef Patties include a surprise filling.
Seal the pepper and cheese inside by placing them on top of a burger-size portion of ground beef, then shape it around to form a patty. Grill to perfection using a brush-on sauce for extra flavor and juiciness.
