Cheddar-stuffed Hamburger Steak with a White and Sweet Potato Mash

Can you hear the relief in my voice?

Anyway, I am home and back at it in the kitchen again.
When I am not Pinteresting my time away, I am making new recipes, like this one that I made for my brother tonight because well... who needs a good reason to cook? It's just fun ok?
I had to work with what we had in the kitchen; we just so happened to have leftover sweet potatoes and white yukon gold potatoes. If you do not happen to have that combination of leftovers in your fridge and do not feel like going through the trouble of cooking both kinds, feel free to make this with just white potatoes or just sweet potatoes. This is just a basic mashed potatoes recipe that was meant to compliment the flavor of the hamburger steak, not overpower it.

Cheddar-stuffed Hamburger Steak:

time cook: 30 minutes
serves: 4


Hamburger Steak:
1 lb. ground hamburger
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup whole wheat (or white) flour
1 egg
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
4 individual cracker barrel cheddar cheese bars

3 Tbs. flour
1 cup milk
1 cup beef broth
1/4 tsp. beef bullion
1/2 tsp. salt


1. In a large bowl, mix together hamburger, cornmeal, flour, egg, garlic powder, and salt.

2. Form the hamburger mixture into 8 small patties and add a slice of cheese to four of them.

This is my new-found obsession people. Try it. Perfect snack-size!!
3. Place four of the non-cheesed patties onto the four cheesed patties. Mash the edges together to keep the cheese from running out when the patties are cooked.

4. Cook the patties on medium-high heat for about 4 minutes on each side, or until they are done all the way through. Place on a warm plate and set aside while making the gravy.

5. To make the gravy, combine the flour, salt, and beef bullion in a small bowl and slowly add the milk until fully mixed with no lumps. Add the beef broth.

6. Cook in a saucepan over medium-high heat for 7 or 8 minutes or until thickened.

8. Add the hamburger steaks and let simmer for several minutes or until softened.

9. Serve immediately with White and Sweet Potato Mash.
