Recipe Details

  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cook Time: 12 minutes
  • Total Time: 42 minutes
  • Servings: 4


  • 1 can (28 oz) BUSH'S® Original Baked Beans
  • For Hamburgers:
  • 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 each egg
  • 11/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp black pepper, ground
  • For Hamburger Filling:
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup roasted red peppers, diced*
  • 4 tsp steak sauce
  • 1/2 tsp chile powder
  • 4 each hamburger buns


  1. For Hamburgers: In large bowl mix together beef, egg, salt and pepper, making sure egg and seasonings are evenly distributed throughout mixture.
  2. Divide mixture into 8 3-ounce portions (use food scale if desired). Using your hands, form each portion into 4-inch-wide patties and place on platter. (Tip: To easily make patties, rinse hands with very cold water and ensure meat is cold prior to forming.)
  3. For Hamburger Filling: In medium bowl mix cheeses, red peppers, steak sauce and chile powder.
  4. Using a spoon, place 1/4 of cheese filling in center of each of the 4 patties.
  5. Carefully place remaining 4 patties on top of filling creating 4 individual hamburgers. Pinch together edges of each hamburger to seal filling.
  6. Set clean, well-oiled grill to medium heat (400 degrees F). When grill is hot, using a spatula, place hamburgers on grill and cook about 4 minutes. Carefully slide a spatula under each burger and rotate one quarter turn. Grill another 2 minutes (this will create nice sear marks).
  7. Using a spatula, flip burgers and grill for 3 minutes. Carefully slide a spatula under each burger and rotate one quarter turn. Grill another 3 minutes or until internal temperature is at least 145 degrees F.
  8. Remove hamburgers from grill and place in hamburger buns.
  9. Serve with BUSH'S® Original Baked Beans.
