I told you earlier this week that good cook is having a kitchen drawer event where you will be able to pick 15 items to fill up your drawer. I was one of the bloggers chosen to fill up my drawer with good cook goodies. I’ve been wanting to make some stuffed burgers ever since I saw the stuffed burger press on good cook.

Here are the items that I got for my good cook drawer: Stuffed Burger Press, Meat Poultry Injector Syringe, Berry Colander, Adjustable Cheese Slicer, Pastry Blender, 10″ Silicone Whisk, wood turnerSmart Scoop Ice Cream Scoop, 12″ Tongs, Salad Tongs, Non-slip Rubber Jar Openers, Nonstick Santoku Knife, Pairing Knife 2-pk, Nonstick Pairing Knife, and Nonstick Sandwich Knife.

Tools used for Good Cook Recipe

You can see above all the tools that I actually used for my meal. I made a stuffed HOBO burger with salad and brownies with ice cream and fresh strawberries for dessert. My absolute favorite tool is that ice cream scoop, second favorite is the burger press, and third favorite is the santoku knife. I really like how the handle feels in my hand while chopping.

Stuffed HOBO BurgerI got a little carried away with my beef when I was stuffing the burger press. You definitely don’t need to make your burger this big. The nice thing about the burger press is that it tells you how much meat you’ve used when you flatten it out.

Stuffed HOBO Burger Recipe


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1 small potato peeled and sliced thin
  • 1 mushrooms sliced
  • 1 carrot peeled and sliced thin
  • shredded cheddar cheese optional
  • salt
  • pepper
  • toppings of your choice


  1. Preheat your oven to 350.
  2. Put some ground beef on the bottom of your burger press. Flip the press handle over and hollow out the middle of the beef.
  3. Add all your veggies and cheddar cheese if you'd like.
  4. Add more beef on top and press with handle again to seal.
  5. Remove burger from burger press. Salt and pepper your burger to your liking.
  6. Wrap burger in foil and bake on rack in oven for 50 minutes.
  7. Remove from foil carefully as there will be a lot of juice at the bottom.
  8. Place burger on a bun and top however you choose, or just eat the burger with a fork!

  19. A very interesting post Paula,
    This meal of yours looks so inviting and i feel like tasting it:).

    Its obvious that one of the main factors that will affect the food you cook is the kitchen utensils you used.

    Its good to also stuff our drawers with all the necessary utensils that will aid our cooking.

    Thanks for sharing.
