Mozzarella Stuffed Burgers

Mozzarella Stuffed Jalapeño Burgers 

Mozzarella stuffed beef burgers seasoned to perfection and topped with a tropical mango, avocado and tomato salsa.  Each burger is placed on top of  the all-new sweet and spicy King’s Hawaiian Jalapeño Rolls to give it that extra summer kick we desire this time of year.  Serve as a main dish for dinner or serve these sliders as an appetizer.

Nothing says the arrival of warm weather like a cookout with fresh burgers and friends.  However, it’s not just any ole burger, no.  This burger is stuffed with mozzarella cheese.  After you take one bite, you’ll wonder why you’ve never done this before. Take it to the next level by adding a dollop of tropical salsa to the burger because it pairs beautifully with King’s Hawaiian Jalapeño Rolls.

There is something beautiful about this time of year with all the outdoor family parties and tailgating for sports games.  There is nothing better than getting together with family and friends to have a potluck in your backyard.

Cheese Stuffed Burgers

This time of year it seems we can’t get enough of being outside and a cookout needs to happen, over and over again until fall arrives.  At least that’s the way our family does it.

The inspiration for this recipe came from the new King’s Hawaiian Jalapeño Rolls.  Have you tried them yet?  King’s Hawaiian has been around for more than 60 years and trust me when I say that it’s a staple in our kitchen.  The all-new King’s Hawaiian Jalapeño Rolls are irresistibly sweet and spicy.  I have so many plans with these rolls in my near future.  I think I snacked on a half a bag before I put them down to share with others.  So much Aloha Spirit and inspiration coming from these super delicious rolls.

King’s Hawaiian Jalapeño Rolls still have its signature sweet taste but with a little added heat thanks to those jalapeños.  Guys, I’m all about these rolls right now.  It’s like I want to wrap one around a piece of bacon with some cream cheese and call it a Jalapeño Popper!

King’s Hawaiian Jalapeño Rolls

For real, though.  That Jalapeno Popper idea has me wanting to stuff a burger with ooey gooey cheese and sandwich it between King’s Hawaiian Jalapeño Rolls because, does life get any better than this right here?  I think this is it right here!  Look at that cheese stuffed burger and tropical salsa added to the top.  These burgers are a much for summer entertaining!

    Oh! It is starting to get cold here in Australia… but I can totally see how these would bring the sunshine! They look divine. I don’t think we can get those buns here but they look fluffy and yum!

      They need to bring them to Australia. I don’t know what I’d do without them. Thanks, Kirsten!

    I am not familiar with the King’s brand, I don’t think it’s available here in the UK, but I love the idea of the cheese-stuffed burgers inside japaleno-studded bread rolls! Yum!

    Those burgers look lovely but I’m really jealous you can get jalapeño rolls. Now I’m recipe planning to see about making my own rolls.

    My mom used to put cheddar in burgers… I’d forgotten that until I saw this. Thanks for the memory…

    And the recipe! Avocado, mango, and mushrooms all together – wow. That sure dresses up a burger!
