Cheese Stuffed Burgers on a Hickory Grilling Plank

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 cheese-stuffed burgers on a hickory grilling plank are bursting of flavor (and two kinds of cheese) for a meal you won’t soon forget. 

Cook Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 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
  • Lettuce
  • Salt & Pepper


  1. Soak Hickory planks in hot water for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat grill to 400°F. Mix instantly fresh sage, thyme & red onion with water.
  3. Combine ground beef, herb mixture, salt, pepper and bread crumbs. Form into 8 thin patties.
  4. 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).
  5. Add another patty on top to create stuffed burger.
  6. Place two slices of red onion on each plank and add burger on top.
  7. Add to grill and cook with lid closed for 15-20 minutes, or until desired done-ness.
  8. Keep a spray bottle of water handy for flare-ups.
  9. Add buns to grill on indirect heat for 2-3 minutes.
  10. ​When done, remove plank and buns from grill and serve with your favorite burger toppings. Enjoy!
