Hello, my name is Nicole and I am a garlic-aholic. Also a cheeseburger-aholic.

So goooood.

I dream about these burgers. I crave these burgers.

I am that girl that puts garlic in everything.

If you like a more mild garlic experience, you can make these Garlic Overload Stuffed Burgers all by themselves without the creamy garlic sauce.

They are still absolutely delicious.

With all that melted cream cheese, herbs, and garlic flavor just bursting out in every bite, you’ll be satisfied with just the burgers. But…

Garlic Overload Burgers with Creamy Garlic Burger Sauce

Yield: 4 burgers
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

If you love garlic, you'll love these Garlic Overload Burgers with Creamy Garlic Burger Sauce; they will blow you away. Cream cheese with herbs and garlic tango together, in a juicy burger that is full of flavor. 


Cream Cheese Mixture

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian herbs


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 8 teaspoons garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Creamy Garlic Burger Sauce

  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¼ cup water

For Garlic Overload Burgers

  • 4 slices provolone cheese
  • 4 brioche hamburger buns


Making the Cream Cheese Mixture

  1. In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, minced garlic and Italian herbs and blend well. Divide into 4 equal portions.

Seasoning and Making the Burgers

  1. In a large bowl, mix the ground beef with the garlic powder and salt and pepper.
  2. Divide the hamburgers into 8 equal portions. Form the meat into balls and then flatten into a patty about ¼" thick. Remember to make the burgers a bit over sized to account for shrinkage when cooking. In the middle of 4 patties, spoon some of the cream cheese mixture.
  3. Top each of the four patties with the cream cheese mixture with the patties without. Gently press the burgers together to form a large burger.
  4. Grill burgers as desired.
  5. When almost ready to remove burgers, add a slice of provolone cheese to the top of each burger. Allow cheese to melt by closing grill (or placing lid over burgers if using something other than a grill).

Creamy Garlic Burger Sauce

  1. In a saucepan, boil ¼ cup of water over medium heat.
  2. Stir in the minced garlic and garlic powder. Boil until the water is nearly evaporated, about 5 minutes. It's okay for some water to remain, but you want very little.
  3. Stir in the heavy cream, Parsley, salt, and pepper.
  4. In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch and ¼ cup of water and stir until dissolved. Add to the cream mixture.
  5. Continue boiling, stirring constantly, until thickened. About 3 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat. It will continue to thicken upon cooling.

Bringing it all together

  1. Place burgers on bottoms of brioche buns.
  2. Spoon Creamy Garlic Burger Sauce over burger.
  3. Top with the top of the brioche bun.

Hello! Super excited to try these out! I live in an apartment complex so I don't have a grill. Is there anyway I can do this in the air fryer?

@Nicole Cook, what bought toppings? any suggestions ?

Brandi, I haven't tried making these in the air fryer, though we make burgers all the time in the air fryer. I think the only concern I would have is the accidental mess they could make. But aside from that I think it would work just fine. It also works using a skillet on the stove in a pinch. Good luck.

Could the garlic sauce be frozen and reheated? Or just wondering how long the sauce keeps for in the fridge. Looking to batch cook.

I am not sure the sauce would hold up frozen, because I have not tried it. If you do, please let us know. On the other hand, it doesn't last here longer than about 2-3 days because we eat it on everything. lol So I'd say the fridge life is probably only about 3-5 days in an airtight container in the fridge.

I made these twice now and they’re so good! I love garlic and love cream cheese so the mixture was great! Only thing is I’m curious why the recipe says to soften the cream cheese. The first time I made this recipe i did not soften and they came out great. Second I did soften a little bit, and all the cream cheese came out of the burgers while cooking.. so I recommend keeping the cream cheese at a thicker state unsoftened so it doesn’t seep out. Just a little tip! Great recipe!

The reason for softening the cream cheese is to make mixing the ingredients together easier. I have not had the cream cheese mixture come out while cooking. It might depend on how well you seal the sides of the meat and also making sure you never push down on the burgers while they are cooking. I'm so glad you enjoyed them. We have on occasion used already flavored cream cheese to stuff them, and yes in that case we don't typically soften first. :)
