John Offerdahl’s Ultimate Stuffed Inside Line Burger

  • Author: Robyn




  • 2 lbs.   Ground Chuck or Sirloin
  • ¾ c      Taco Chips, finely crushed (7oz)
  • 1            Egg
  • 2 T        Mustard
  • ½ t       Garlic Salt
  • ¼ t       Pepper

Mix & flatten to 11” (bottom) & 9” (top) circles on wax paper. Layer ingredients below on 11” (bottom) circle, with the cheese on both.

Stuffed Inside

  • 8oz       Sliced Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese (half on top & half on bottom)
  • 1           Ripe Tomato sliced and seasoned with Lemon Pepper
  • ½          Red Onion thinly sliced
  • ½ c       Dill or Sweet Pickle sliced
  • ¼ c       Black or Green Olives sliced

After ingredients are layered, gently take the top circle and place on top of the bottom circle.  Pinch and seal the edges carefully so that the ingredients will stay inside the LineBurger.



Heat the grill to medium temperature 350 degrees and oil the grate well.


  • ¼ c       Melted Butter
  • 1 T        Chili Powder

Mix above ingredients and brush onto the giant burger before placing on the grill and after halftime flip.


Grill 6-8 minutes on a side, turning and removing with a cookie sheet.  The seasoning and fresh ingredients really make it special.  You can cut it into wedges, and serve it alone or inside a bun.  Potato Salad is a nice complement.
