Brie Burger Recipe

Gourmet Gone Easy: Spicy, Brie-Stuffed Burgers

This burger may have you at "brie," but the surprise knockout here is actually a spicy scallion mayonnaise, made with lemon zest, serrano pepper, and garlic.

You may be skeptical of pairing a French cheese with something so spicy, but one bite and I assure you that you'll be sold on the combo forever. Who can resist gourmet flavors, prepped, grilled, and assembled in about 30 minutes flat?

Brie Jucy Lucy Recipe

Ingredients

  1. For spicy scallion paste:
    4 scallions, thinly sliced
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 serrano chile, thinly sliced
    Zest of 1 lemon
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup mayonnaise
  1. For the burgers:
    1 1/2 pounds ground beef
    Salt and freshly ground pepper
    4 ounces brie cheese, rind removed and cut into 4 pieces
    Vegetable oil, for brushing
    4 hamburger buns of your choice
    1 large tomato, cut in 1/4-inch slices
    1 head of butter lettuce, leaves separated

Directions

  1. Make spicy scallion paste: In a food processor, pulse scallions, garlic, chile, lemon zest, olive oil, and salt together until a chunky paste forms. Set 4 tablespoons aside. With remaining scallion paste, mix it with 1/4 cup mayonnaise; set aside and refrigerate for later use.
  2. Make burgers: Light a grill or place a grill pan on the stove over high heat. In a medium-sized bowl, season ground beef with salt and pepper and form 8 thin patties. Top 4 patties with a slice of Brie and a tablespoon of scallion paste. Top with the 4 remaining patties, pinching the edges to seal.
  3. Brush burgers with oil and grill over high heat, turning once or twice, about 8 minutes for medium-rare patties. Two minutes before serving, grill hamburger buns until toasted.
  4. To assemble burgers: Spread a thin layer of reserved scallion mayonnaise on insides of buns. Fill each bun with a burger, tomato, and lettuce.

Serves 4.
