Stuffed Burger Bundles

This is a great recipe that I received from Sister Ward. She owned a catering company and was fabulous at it. Everything that she made was wonderful.


1 lb. lean ground beef
1 pkg. stove top stuffing for 6, prepared
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/3 c. evaporated milk (or cream)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 Tbsp. catsup

Combine the ground beef and milk. Put out in 6 large patties. Put a generous spoonful of stuffing in the center of each patty. Close up the patty completely so stuffing is encased. Place patties in a glass 9 x 13 inch pan. combine soup, Worcestershire sauce, and catsup thoroughly. Spoon over the patties. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree over for 45 minutes.
