Homemade hamburgers

4 links of organic turkey-sundried tomato sausages, meat only-no casing
1 lb. lean ground been
1/2 large red bell pepper, diced
1/2 large purple onion, chopped fine
2 large eggs
24 multigrain crackers, crushed
2 tbsp cayenne pepper
6 tbsps hickory smoked barbecue sauce
4 tbsp organic hemp hearts
Salt and pepper to taste

6 large balls of goat cheese (about 1 tbsp)

Mix all ingredients except the goat cheese in a large bowl well.  Form large thick round balls(approximately 4 to 5 inches diameter).  Slowly press flat between palms.  Using thumb, make an indentation in the center, leaving still about 1/2 inch of meat, place goat cheese ball here.  Take a piece of the mixture and flatten it and cover the goat cheese, pressing the meat down against the patty, sealing the cheese in the center.

Over medium high heat, on a hot griddle, place the patty and cook until the brown starts to creep halfway up the side, you may have to lower the heat to keep the patty from burning, but you do want it quite dark, approximately ten minutes.  Flip over to the other side and cook for another 10 minutes.

Serve on a large kaiser roll with mayonnaise and other condiments as desired.  Best served with sweet potato fries.
