Stuffed Gouda & Bacon Burger

The beauty of this burger is it's versatility.  Although the bacon and Gouda stuffing is always a hit; try changing up the stuffing ingredients to fit the tastes of your guests.  Blue cheese, grilled onions, tomato slices or Jalapeno peppers!  Even unstuffed, this burger has fantastic flavor and will not disappoint.
