July Recipe: Scallion and Brie Stuffed Burgers
Scallion and Brie Stuffed Burgers
1-1/2 pounds ground beef
Salt and freshly ground pepper
4 oz Brie, rind removed, cheese cut into 4 slices
1/4 cup Spicy Scallion Paste (recipe below)
Vegetable Oil, for brushing
1/4 cup mayonnaise
4 Hamburger buns, split
Tomato slices and lettuce for serving
Light a grill. Season the ground beef with salt and pepper and form into eight 4-in patties that are slightly thicker in the center. Top 4 of the patties with a slice of Brie and a scant tablespoon of the scallion paste. Top with the 4 remaining patties, pinching the edges to seal.
Brush the burgers with oil and grill over high heat, turning once or twice, about 8 minutes for medium-rare meat.
Meanwhile, mix the mayonnaise with the remaining scallion paste. Grill the buns until toasted. Spread the mayonnaise on the bottoms of the buns and top with the burgers, tomatoes and lettuce. Close the burgers and serve.
Spicy Scallion Paste:
4 Scallions, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 fresh hot chili, seeded and minced
1/2 tsp finely grated lemon zest
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
