Hamburgers and hot dogs at a tailgate party can be pretty boring. Laying a slice of cheese on top of those burgers is not going to inspire anyone to take up tailgating anytime soon. But burgers are still a big time favorite and people love to have them while tailgating. I found a way to spruce up those boring burgers by making stuffed burgers using the Burger Pocket Press.
As you can see from the above photo, the Burger Pocket Press is a four piece contraption that allows you to make stuffed hamburgers at home and bring them to your next tailgate. Take a look at a quick demo video the inventor of the Burger Pocket Press put together to show how easy is it to make stuffed burgers.
If you skipped the the video here is a step-by-step guide on using the Burger Pocket Press to make stuffed burgers for your next tailgating party.
1) Measure out 1/3 cup of ground beef and place it in the middle of the ring portion of the Burger Pocket Press.
2) Flatten the meat into an even patty using the flat press. Set aside.
3) Measure 1/2 cup of meat and place it into the bowl.
4) Shape the meat with the contoured pocket press to create a meat bowl.
5) Add cheese, bacon, garlic, jalapenos, etc. into the bowl
6) Replace the ring into the bowl and then place the 1/3 cup patty on top of the bowl.
7) Use the flat press to compress both sides of the burger into each other forming one complete burger with the fixings in the middle.
8) Wrap up the burgers and refrigerate until time to place in the cooler and head to the tailgate party.
Here is a video demonstration of my experience using the Burger Pocket Press.
In the interest of full disclosure, I was provided a sample of the Burger Pocket Press pro bono and they have chosen to advertise on TailgatingIdeas.com. The free sample and their choice to advertise here had no influence on my experience with the Burger Pocket Press. I found it to be very easy to use and easy to clean up. The pieces are dishwasher safe and made of durable plastic.
The best part is that the Burger Pocket Press makes serving a unique burger at your tailgating party more affordable. I am sure buying stuffed burgers at the local deli or meat market would be exorbitantly expensive compared to buying your own ground beef and making them at home. On top of that, you control what you want inside your burger. You want a sun dried tomato, feta cheese and olive burger? Go for it. How about a jalapeno, Monterrey Jack and avocado burger? Bring it on. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination of what combinations would taste good together. If you don’t have a good imagination, no worries. The folks at Burger Pocket Press have a number of stuffed burger recipes that can give you some good ideas.
