Stuffed Half-Pounders

We made these sandwiches in my high school home economics class back in the 1960s. Traditional toppings are cleverly tucked inside these plump burgers for a mouthful of wonderful flavor. - June Croft, Bay Minette, Alabama

    4 servings


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices onion
  • 4 slices tomato
  • 4 teaspoons sweet or dill pickle relish
  • 4 hamburger buns, split


  • In a large bowl, combine the eggs, salt and pepper; crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into eight thin patties.
  • Layer four patties with onion, tomato and relish. Top with remaining patties and press edges firmly to seal. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 8 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear. Serve on buns.
Before broiling foods, spray broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray or line it with greased foil. Clean-up will be quick with little mess.
