Camping Recipes: Pepper and Cheese Stuffed Burgers

August 20, 2013 in Camping Recipes, Main Dishes by amylaree

It’s easy enough to make some burger patties, stick them in a cooler then head out for the camp ground, but hauling all the fixin’s is when it gets to be a pain. That’s why we love this Stuffed Cheeseburger with Peppers camping recipe… all of the fixin’s are already on the inside! You can fix this on a grill, but when a grill isn’t available, just wrap this stuffed burger in a foil packet and throw it on the campfire.

This burger can have endless options – pair up your favorite cheese(s) and peppers. As the burger cooks, the flavor of the pepper starts to permeate the entire patty, making every bite – from first to last – absolutely delicious. What more can you ask for in a great camping recipe?

Camping Recipes: Pepper and Cheese Stuffed Burgers


  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 2 - 3 Splashes of Worcestershire Sauce
  • 3 Peppers (your choice, we like habanero and red hot chili peppers)
  • Cheese of your choice
  • Hamburger Buns
  • Additional cheese or your favorite burger toppings


  1. Mix together ground beef, egg, garlic, salt, pepper & Worcestershire sauce until just combined. Divide hamburger mix into 6 small patties. Set aside.
  2. Slice off the top of the pepper(s) and hollow out the seeds. Try to keep the pepper intact.
  3. Stuff a pepper with cheese. Place on top of one of the patties and top with another patty.
  4. Form the hamburger around the pepper so that it creates a seal around the pepper.
  5. Repeat the process with the remaining peppers and patties.
  6. Wrap burger in tin foil and place on grill or campfire. Cook 10 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  7. Remove from foil (it'll be steamy so be careful!) and place on bun. Top with your favorite burger fixin's and enjoy!
