Reynolds Kitchens tip

You’ll want to stuff your face after you stuff these Cheese Stuffed Burgers! Cook this entire dish on the grill with heavy-duty aluminum foil packets. The packets will cook the mushrooms and onions to perfection, and you can easily toss the packets away when you’re done, for fast cleanup.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper, divided
  • 4 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns, split
  • Lettuce leaves and/or sliced tomatoes (optional)


Step 1

COMBINE olive oil, salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper in a small bowl. Center half of the mushrooms and onion on a sheet (12x18 inches) of Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil. Drizzle with half of the olive oil mixture. Bring up foil sides. Double-fold top and ends to seal packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Repeat to make two packets.

Step 2

LINE a baking sheet with Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil. Mix the beef, Worcestershire sauce, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper in a large bowl until combined. Shape beef mixture into eight thin, 4-inch diameter patties on the prepared baking sheet. Place 1 tablespoon of the shredded cheese onto the center of each of four of the patties. Top with the remaining four patties; pinch edges to seal.

Step 3

TRANSFER burgers on the foil and foil packets to the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-high heat and grill for 10 minutes or until burgers are done (160°F) and vegetables are tender. Toast cut sides of hamburger buns during the last minute of grilling.

Step 4

OPEN packets carefully by cutting along top fold with a sharp knife, allowing steam to escape; then open top of foil packet.

Step 5

SERVE burgers on buns with grilled vegetables and lettuce and/or tomato slices, if desired.
