Gourmet Burgers 

These burgers were inspired by the amazing, organic bison burger I had last week at Yeah!Burger when I went home to Atlanta. The burger I had was an organic bison burger with goat cheese, fig jam, caramelized onions, and arugula on a whole wheat bun. These are beef burgers but with a delicious twist. 

Ingredients 

1/3 lb ground chuck 

1/3 lb ground sirloin 

1/3 lb ground beef 

Burger seasoning: 1 tsp of each: black pepper, kosher salt, chili powder, granulated garlic, granulated onion, smoked paprika, and ½ tsp mustard powder. 

Small amount of olive oil 

Arugula 

Caramelized onions - recipe here: + 1 tbsp sugar 

Goat cheese 

Organic peach jam 

Buns of your choice - I chose French Brioche 

Directions 

Heat a cast iron pan over medium heat. Also, preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit 

In a large bowl, mix together the three ground meats and the seasoning blend.

Form patties – you should be able to form about 4-6 burgers. 

Once formed, place into pan and sear both sides to develop a nice crust. 

Finish in oven to your desired temperature. 

Toast your buns with butter and assemble! 

Be forewarned that these are incredible. 

Enjoy!
