This stuffed cheeseburger is a good example of some of the hearty dishes Kelly shares on her site that makes you want to lick the computer screen! I actually made these scrumptious Cinnamon Apple Fritters to share with you at first, but I’ve made a lot of birthday celebration sweets (Peanut Butter Mousse Cake, Maple Bacon Monkey Bread), and when Alan saw this stuffed cheeseburger over my shoulder one evening he said, “Oh, you gotta make that!” I have to admit, this recipe kept calling my name too!

You can get super creative with with cheeseburger sandwich and add your favorite condiments like jalapeños, pickles and sliced onions. Alan and Sam added mustard, lettuce and tomatoes to their portions. I thought the meat was very flavorful and ate it plain with the ooey gooey cheese topping!
