Hi all! Today is the day for the final burger on the burger series. It has been so fun doing this and showing some flavour combos that are my favourite and are a little different.
Even though this is the last one, it isn't the least one. This burger right here is my all time favourite and my favourite out of all the burgers. I had to save the best for last right?
If you missed all one through four then here is your chance to catch up!
Bacon Jalapeno Guacamole Burger
Wild Boar Mushroom Swiss Burger
Greek Turkey Burger
Roasted Red Pepper and Grilled Halloumi Burger
Truffle Brie and Bacon Burger
2 pounds of ground beef
1 pound of ground pork
1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sause
1 teaspoon of ground pepper
1 teaspoon of sea salt
2 cups of baby Arugala
6 to 8 slices of double creamed brie cheese
6 to 8 slices of thick cut bacon
6 tablespoons of cherry jam, chutney, or compote (I use my home preserved cherry jam)
6 tablespoons of mayo
2 tablespoons of truffle oil
4 gourmet hamburger buns
Preheat oven to 350F, cook bacon until the desired doneness (not everyone likes crispy). Set aside on a plate with paper towel and drain some of the fat off.
In a small bowl add the mayo and truffle oil. Mix together and cover and place in the fridge until you are ready to assemble the burgers.
In a mixing bowl add the ground meat, then the Worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper. With clean hands mix it all together and form 4 to 6 large patties. Heat a large frying pan to a medium high heat, add a splash of olive oil. Once the pan is hot, cook the patties one or two at a time. Sear the one side by cooking and not moving it for 5 minutes. Flip the patty over and sear the other side. Once they are cooked to an internal temperature of 155-160F then they are done.
Cut the buns in half width wise. Smear some truffle mayo onto the top and bottom cut portions of the buns, add a tablespoon of cherry jam on top of the top bun. Place the cooked bacon on the bottom bun, then the cooked burger patty, then add 2 to 3 slices of brie cheese on top to the patty. Place arugula on top of the cheese and place the top of the bun on.
When I asked my husband which burger out of all of them he responded "they were all good" but when I pressed him a bit more about it he agreed that this one was his favourite and top one. To me there is something about the creamy brie and the saltiness of the bacon and the earthiness of the truffle oil and arugula. It all gets cut with a bit of sweetness of the cherry jam. If you can't find cherry jam then maybe grab a cherry chutney, if you can't find one of then look online on how to make your own! When in doubt make it yourself!
Happy eating everyone and happy Monday!
