Smokey Garlic and Cheddar Stuffed Burger

This Smokey garlic and cheddar stuffed veal burgers were created by our friend Dairy Carrie and the recipe has her secret to juicy flavor packed burgers! She uses chia seeds to infuse flavor into these babies, and they are so good. Allow the chia seeds to soak in the beer, garlic, and chipotle for at least 30 minutes before or just do it the day before! The chia seeds only add flavor to these burgers, and even better they are STUFFED with cheddar cheese. Carrie calls for an aged cheddar cheese, and she is from Wisconsin so I would take her advice on that. Top it with your choice of bun and you’ve got a great burger for summer grilling (or anytime of the year for that matter).
