Creamy Cheesy Stuffed Burgers for Two and Football

Go Bucks!!
Ok we are into football season, which is my season. So I will share one of my favorite tailgate or couch day burgers with you.
I make a variety of different ones, so let me share my first of many with you.
Ohio State is 4 and 0 so there is a bunch of celebrating going on in our house.
These two recipes are easy, fast and tasty. So whether you are a fan of football or not I think you will enjoy these.
Creamy Cheesy Stuffed Burgers for Two;
1 pound ground beef (at least 80/20 fat ratio)
½ cup cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons dill
1 tablespoon shallot minced
2 teaspoons garlic powder
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Four slices sharp cheddar cheese
Gently roll equal amounts of ground beef into four balls.
Flatten into four patties
Mix remaining ingredients and set aside
Heat your outside grill. Or if using an inside grill follow manufactures instructions. (On this particular day the wind was blowing so hard, we couldn’t safely start our charcoal grill) so we heated up the George Foreman grill, which is my stand by. You can also use a hot skillet, if grills aren’t an option.  
Divide the cream cheese equally between two of the patties. Place the second patty on top and pinch the two burgers together.
We like Medium Rare so we grill the burgers on each side approximately 4 minutes. For the last minute, melt two slices sharp cheddar on each burger.
Toast buns and serve immediately. We our purist when it comes to these burgers and don’t care for any condiments, but feel free to add whatever you like.
