Cheese Stuffed Burgers on a Hickory Grilling Plank


The same old burgers just won’t cut it anymore. For this recipe, we combined two things everyone loves (burgers and cheese) into one giant, mouthwatering, you’ll-regret-this-later kind of meal. Our Hickory planked cheese-stuffed burgers are bursting of flavor (and two kinds of cheese) for a meal you won’t soon forget. 

Cook Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 4

2 Hickory Grilling Planks
2 lbs. Lean Ground Beef
Cheddar Cheese
Pepper Jack Cheese
1 tsp. each of Litehouse Instantly Fresh: Thyme, Sage & Red Onion
2 Tbsp. Bread Crumbs
4 Buns
1 Tomato, sliced
1 Red Onion, sliced
Salt & Pepper

Pro Tip: You can create unlimited combinations of burger stuffings. Add vegetables, mushrooms, jalapenos or whatever your heart desires to stuff the burger.


  • Soak Hickory planks in warm water for 20 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Preheat grill to 400°F. Mix instantly fresh sage, thyme & red onion with water.
  • Combine ground beef, herb mixture, salt, pepper and bread crumbs. Form into 8 thin patties.
  • Slice Cheddar and Pepper Jack Cheese into small pieces and place on 4 of the patties (they will need to fit inside the patty, with room on the outside, to seal the patties together).
  • Add another patty on top to create stuffed burger.
  • Place two slices of red onion on each plank and add burger on top.
  • Add to grill and cook with lid closed for 15-20 minutes, or until desired done-ness.
  • Keep a spray bottle of water handy for flare-ups.
  • Add buns to grill on indirect heat for 2-3 minutes.
  • ​When done, remove plank and buns from grill and serve with your favorite burger toppings. Enjoy!
