Burgers For Tasting Parties

These are absolutely wonderful to devour..oops..sorry, taste! The Canadian Super Store sell the miniature hamburger buns (or make your own) and they are the perfect size. If your store does not sell these, small soft buns will do. Cobbs Bakery now have the slider buns.

For 8 burgers you will need:

  • 1 lb. fine ground beef
  • 1/2 oz .sliced Brie cheese (triple cream is best) for each burger
  • 2 medium sized porcini mushrooms, sliced

Form the burgers into 1 inch thick patties, adding nothing to the mixture. Season with a tiny pinch of salt and pepper and a smear of olive oil. Grill to medium over  a high heat.

Place the burgers on miniature size soft buns that have been lightly grilled.

Add 1/2 oz. of Brie cheese on each burger, by cutting into thick strips and place on a burger once it has been grilled, until it has become slightly molten.

Slice the porcini mushrooms into strips and season with a little oil, salt and pepper. Grill quickly and place on top of the melted cheese and place on  the top of the bun. Serve immediately.

Be sure to add a generous dollop of the truffle aioli to the burger. Recipe follows.


Truffle Aioli

  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • juice from 2 limes
  • 2 tbsp. white truffle paste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 eggs

Add the eggs to a food processor. Slowly drizzle the oil until a mayo like consistency is achieved. Add the remaining ingredients while  the machine is running.

Add this on your burgers….oh my! yummy
