There are always those products where you think, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Well the Burger Pocket Press is definitely one of them. When I’m not gorging myself on BBQ I am a certified burger junkie and I’m always searching for ways to make better tasting and more interesting burgers. I became interested in ‘stuffing’ burgers when I saw Adam Richman from Man v. Food visit the bar that makes the Juicy Lucy.
Luckily I didn’t have to travel across the country to make an incredible stuffed burger as I learned when visiting my friend a couple of weeks ago. He had just ordered a Burger Pocket Press so, gluttons that we are, we decided to make a bunch of burgers. Ones we stuffed with (individually) Maytag blue cheese, jalapeno pepper jack, serrano peppers and cheddar, as well as scratch made chorizo and swiss cheese. They all were insanely good (one thing you have to learn though is not to overstuff the ingredients even though you may want to as it will spill out the sides for sure) and super easy to make.
Since I tried and loved the product I emailed the owner of the company, Michael Ajakie, to send some of his own photos of burgers being made with the Burger Pocket Press as I neglected to bring a camera to my friend’s house. Here they are:

Michael sent me a video of him making a stuffed Cuban burger. That is definitely on my list of must make next.
