  1. Preheat a grill pan or grill to high.
  2. Preheat a small skillet over medium-high heat wth 2 tablespoons of EVOO. Add the shallots, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring frequently, for 5 to 6 minutes, or until lightly brown.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of the sherry vinegar and continue to cook for 1 minute, then remove from the heat and reserve.
  4. While the shallots are getting brown, in a large bowl, combine the beef, thyme, Worcestershire, grill seasoning, and Dijon mustard.
  5. Divide the meat into 4 portions. Form large patties about 1 1/4 inches.
  6. Coat the beef patties with a good drizzle of EVOO. Grill for 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium rare, 7 to 8 minutes per side for medium well to well.
  7. Drizzle of brush EVOO onto both sides of the bread slices, season with salt and pepper, and add to the grill.
  8. Cook until well marked on both sides, remove from the grill, and wrap in foil to keep warm.

  10. To serve, divide the grilled bread among 4 serving plates. Top bread with beet and goat cheese salad, letting it overflow onto the plates.
  11. Transfer the burgers to the top of the salad and then pile each burger with some of the caramelized shallots.

Tasty burger with rustic thyme and Dijon theme. And a feta beetroot salad to go with.

These were very good. Tip: EVOO = extra virgin olive oil. My husband figured it out. I had no idea what it meant.
