Let’s class it up today on Burger Artist with some Brie. Brie is a soft, creamy cheese that tastes delicious and pairs really well with green apples so we’ll create some green apple and brie burgers. Brie comes with a rind of white mold that is perfectly ok to eat. That rind won’t really melt on the burger though so its up to you to either leave it or cut it off.
If you’d like, you can also dice up some onions to mix in with your burger meat and throw a little Thyme for extra flavor. There’s a great restaurant called the 112 Eatery here in Minneapolis that makes a similar burger, and it’s awesome!
We’re also going to switch up the typical bun with an English muffin, to match the delicate cheese (or something). You’ll also get to throw the apples on the grill to get them nice and hot. Yum.
Green Apple and Brie Burger
- 2 Lbs Ground Chuck Beef 80% lean / 20% fat
- 4 English Muffins
- 12 Slices Brie Cheese
- 4 Tsp Salt
- 1 Tsp Pepper
- 8 Slices Green Apple
- 4 Leaves Lettuce
- Core apple and cut horizontally into rounds.
- Get your grill/pan/etc hot.
- Salt & pepper the ground beef and then divide into 8oz (1/2 lb) portions (or you can use smaller 6oz portions). Flatten into patties that are about 1/2 inch larger than the buns.
- Put a thumbprint in the middle of the patty so it doesn’t puff up when cooking.
- Grill your burgers about 4min on the first side.
- Place apples on a cooler area on the grill.
- Flip burgers and immediately add cheese. Put the english muffins face down on the grill. Cook until you reach the correct temp (140F for medium), usually about 2 to 4 minutes.
- Place lettuce on bottom muffin and then top with burger & apples.
