Thin Filet Mignons

Hi all. I recently bought a bunch of beef which included *thin* filet mignons. I thought, perhaps, I could place stuffing between 2 of them and grill as usual, maybe hold them together with toothpicks and grill them as usual. Do any of you have any experience with this? Can you suggest anything?
Thanx for your help.

    1. Flatten them out and make carpaccio

      Meat glue them together for thicker steaks

      Asian style stir fry

        the best broccoli stir-fry ever...

        pan sear and top a salad

        1. I may get blasted for this (and yes, I know how to cook seafood) but if they're that thin, and you like your steaks rare or medium rare - and want to stuff something between them, what about some crab meat?

          The only problem with that is that the crab meat would already be cooked, so you would only want it heated at most. You could grill the steaks very quickly, and then layer them with the crab in between the thin steaks. No cooking already stuffed - the warmth of the steak would slightly heat the crab meat. I'd go for them.
