Turtle BurgersThese "Turtle Burgers" are just so very cute, creative, and fun that they definitely need to be shared with my entire ThriftyFun family and not just the recipe lovers! A little crispy and not too crunchy; just how a turtle should be ;-) Bon Appetit!


Make your handmade ground beef patties, top with sharp cheddar cheese, wrap in a bacon weave, then add hotdog pieces for the head, legs (with slits for toes), and a tail. Place on an oven rack, cover loosely with foil, and bake for 20 to 30 minutes at 400 degrees F.

This is a delicious twist on burgers; a real change of pace.


  • 1 lb. ground sirloin
  • 1 heaping tsp. dried sage
  • 1/ tsp. rosemary, crumbled
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped (green and white parts)
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1 heaping tsp. relish (the recipe calls for India Relish)
  • Advertisement

  • 2 Tbsp. capers
  • 1 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley
  • 1 egg, well beaten
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • oil for frying


Mix the meat and the dry ingredients, then mix in the wet ones. Let the mixture sit for one hour. Make nice, fat patties, making a small depression in the middle of each with your thumb (this help keep them from puffing up).

On medium high heat, add the patties in and sear them for about 1 minute. Turn the heat down to medium, and fry for 4 minutes without disturbing. Turn the heat back up to medium high in the last 30 seconds, then flip the burgers. Sear for 1 minute, lower the heat, and cook 3 minutes, or until done.

Servings: 4
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cooking Time: 10 - 12 Minutes

Source: I don't remember where it was published, but I read an article with Ernest Hemingway's (then) wife (I don't remember which one). She said that this was one of his favorite recipes. I tried it, and I love it too. I don't even use any condiments on my burger, though sauteed mushrooms are really good with it.

This seems like a lot of work for two burgers but they are yummy and you can make extra patties to freeze for future use. The avocado sauce and burger toppings are quick and easy to put together.

Saute the spinach in olive oil until it wilts. In a large bowl, mix the turkey/beef, spinach, lemon zest, garlic, salt and pepper.

In medium saucepan, over medium heat cook ground beef, minced onion and salt until ground beef is brown; drain fat. Stir in undiluted soup, cook until hot and bubbly about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Here you will take your ingredients and stuff the bottom half of a seasoned burger and then add a patty to the top and pat together. Making a awesome stuffed patty. We seasoned the meat with our favorite seasoning.


Browned some onions with butter and maple syrup. Yummy. Then you add your favorite cheese and top it off. Brown both sides in a frying pan and serve with your lettuce and ketchup if you choose. Here is my burger.

Love the sauce this meat is cooked in. Good for topping when meat is cooked!

These are good on buns or separately on your plate with sauce over.

When cooking hamburgers from scratch, put a thin slice of cheese, onion, etc. in the middle of the burger instead of putting it on top and watch it cook.


I think this is the best way to eat a cheeseburger.

I used this recipe for cooking hundreds of burgers for my kids fund raisers, my church outings and my Civitan club events. Now, it being just me, I only need 4 at a time.

When I went to high school in Lander, WY. There was a burger place across from the high school. They sold what were called either cheesewheels or cartwheels. They were a hamburger patty and slice of cheese that was dipped in batter and then deep fat fried. Would anyone have a recipe like that?

I found this on How-To: Deep-Fried Cheese-Stuffed Cheeseburgers

Deep-fryer (or a stockpot with boil basket )
Deep-fry or candy thermometer (preferably one that clips on to side of pot)
Meat thermometer

1 lb. hamburger
1 to 2 sticks mozzarella string cheese, cut into small pieces
Packaged beer-batter mix
A neutral-flavored oil, for frying (safflower oil, peanut oil, or vegetable shortening work well)
Your favorite hamburger bun
The cheese of your choice
The condiments of your choice

1. Form two equal-size patties, making an indentation in the center of one to hold the cheese. Place the cheese in the indentation of the bottom patty, cover with the top patty, and crimp the edges tightly to seal. Make sure seal is tight so cheese does not leak out.

2. Place oil in your deep-fryer, and allow it to come to frying temperature. If you don't have a deep-fryer, use a stockpot with a boil basket, along with a deep-fry thermometer that clips to the side. Heat oil over high heat to 365°F. (Note: Depending on the oil, it will begin to burn between 400 and 450°F and will catch fire around 500°F. So be very careful to monitor temperature.) Once the oil reaches 365°F, reduce heat to low and monitor temperature, keeping oil at 365°F.

3. Meanwhile, prepare the beer-batter mix according to package instructions. Dredge patty in mix. Place patty in boil basket and lower gently into hot oil. Cook until patty's internal temperature registers 160°F on a meat thermometer.

4. Remove from oil, drain on paper towels. Serve on bun, topped with the cheese and condiments of your choice. (Note: Be careful not to bite into this too soon after cooking. The molten cheese could deliver quite a scalding.)
Is this what you were looking for?

I live in Riverton and I've been working on a a batter that is really close to Dairyland's. But first you have to have a frozen hamburger patty. Take the patty and run you finger under water and rub the water on the patty then take a Kraft single and place in on the patty, the water helps it stick. Then dip it in flour so your batter will stick, next dunk the patty in the batter covering it. Then quickly transfer patty into 450 degree deep fryer, cook until golden brown. Sprinkle with seasoning salt. For more "puffy cheesewheels" add about 1/4 teaspoon baking powder, but if you want them like Dairyland's just use the recipe provided below. I hope that helps you on Cheese Wheel quest! Good luck!

Batter ingredients:

1/2c. milk
1 egg
3/4 c. all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
(optional) yellow food coloring 3-4 drops

Okay folks, here is the real deal, the authentic one!
I lived in Riverton, Wyoming throughout the 70's & 80's and have custody of the original "Cartwheel" or "Wagon wheel" deep fried cheese burger recipe.

You start by cooking pre-made burgers, set aside & blot off excess grease, after cooling put a peace of American cheese on both sides of burger and freeze.

How you make the batter:
2 eggs
1 3/4 C. flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp of sugar
dash of salt
1C. milk

Combine ingredients in a large bowl & set aside.
Take frozen ,pre-cooked burgers out and dip into batter put in deep fat fryer, or pan fry , turning every few seconds until burger is golden brown.
Wait a few to let it cool & start eatin' what your mouth has been missin'.
You can do many things with this batter (I personally like omitting the salt ,adding cinnamon and peeled/ thin slice granny smith apples & add to batter...and fry 'em up...good stuff!)

It's kinda funny that I am looking for the same thing..I didn't grow up in Lander, but both my daughters were born there and spent their early years growing up there..The place was called Dairyland, family owned and operated..We ate there at least twice a week and I never got tired of them, they called them cartwheels as I remembered and you could also have chili and sour cream added after they came out of the fryer...One of the best things I ever ate..

I wanna thank you for the recipe as I too went to the covered wagon for wagon wheels. I miss them so much and cannot wait to try this recipe. So excited.

I used to work at Taco Time in Riverton in about 1979, and we sold cartwheels by the ton! They came to us frozen from a plant in a little town nearby, and when our family decided to move to Montana, my mom went to the plant and bought a box of them to take with us! They didn't last long with our family of six, but they were sooooo good!
