Herbed Goat Cheese Stuffed Hamburgers with Apple Pomegranate Relish

I am transferring all of the recipes from my soon to be defunct food blog to this blog!  Here's a good one!
Things have been mighty apple-y and pomegranate-y around here lately!  But, they are such quintessentially fall-like foods that I can’t help it!
Plus, seasonal foods are more delicious and less expensive!
Both are wins in my book!
I tossed this Herbed Goat Cheese Stuffed Burger with Apple Pomegranate Relish together tonight and I absolutely loved it!

I love recipes like this that seem really fancy, but are actually really easy!
I divided a pound of hamburger into 4 ounce sections.  I divided one of those in half and pressed them into thin patties.  I made the rest into regular hamburgers for my people.
I did my best to slice the goat cheese, but that isn’t super easy!  I ended up just kind of pressing slice-ish pieces onto one of the thin patties.  When that was done, I topped it with the remaining patty and pinched them together.
Maggie was the burger season-er!  I had her sprinkle some salt, pepper, and garlic powder on the burgers.
While the burgers are grilling (I used a grill pan because our grill is out of gas), it’s super easy to throw together the relish!
There’s just something fun about eating a burger with a fork :)
