Philly Cheese Steak Stuffed Burgers

Fathers Day is coming up this weekend and I wanted to get this awesome burger recipe posted so you can make them for your father or husband. It’s a great twist on two favorites; Philly Cheese Steaks and Burgers.

My father passed away two years ago after battling heart disease, for over 30 years. He lived a long time with a disease that killed most of his brothers at a much earlier age. My dad was a good christian man, who would help anyone and was always there for my mother, who is blind. I think he lived as long as he did because he felt the need to take care of her.

I’m also lucky enough to have a great father-n-law, John. John has always been very supportive and a great help on projects around the house. As I was once a builder and re-modeler, we usually make a pretty good team with projects my wife wants us to complete.

John has a gift for building furniture, which I do not possess. He has made many of the pieces in our home. For Christmas, this year, he made us a built-in entertainment center for our great room. Last week we installed the unit, which was not an easy task. I am one that usually wants to keep working to get the job done instead of stopping for lunch.  I have been known to starve my father-in-law on these projects we work on.  My wife was gone all day at work and reminded me that I need to feed her dad.  For lunch I made him a burger, my tester for this post.  Philly Cheese Steak Stuffed Burger

What a transformation of our great room. He did a fabulous job!

The Philly stuffed burger was great, but not as good as the craftsmanship John showed with this awesome built-in. Thanks John, we appreciate all that you do.Philly Cheese Steak Stuffed Burger

    Happy Father’s Day, and thanks for all you do, for everyone!

  2. What a lovely way to enjoy burger to the fullest. I love burgers – I am sure I will love this. I just a problem with grilling stuff. 😀 The transformation in your entertainment room is awesome – John really did a good job. Happy Father’s Day to you, Quinn. Happy FF & have a great weekend. 🙂

    1. Thanks Jhuls. Yes we have really transformed our great room since we moved in two years ago. What are your grilling issues? Thanks for the Father’s Day wishes. Happy FF! and have a great weekend also.

      1. I am so lazy when it comes to grilling. I always grill using a grill pan, but I couldn’t make it right. I mean, I could not cook it right. 😐

  3. These look amazing, I may be drooling a tad!
    I’m sorry to hear that you lost your father, but this was a lovely tribute to your father-in-law – sounds like you’ve been very lucky to have them both in your life!

    Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Fiesta Friday!
