Ready In:
4 Burgers




  • In a medium skillet over low heat, combine the shallots with the oil and cook until they are browned but not scorched, about 20 minutes, stirring often. Let cool to room temperature.
  • Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat. In a large bowl gently mix the patty ingredients and shape into 4 patties of equal size and thickness. Make a hole in the center of each patty for the cheese.
  • Trim away the rind of the Brie and bury the cheese, about 1/4 ounce for each patty, into the hole of each patty. Close the opening to seal the cheese inside. It’s important that there is one-third of an inch of meat on the top and bottom of the cheese so it doesn’t seep out.
  • Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the patties over direct high heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until cooked to medium, 8 to 10 minutes, turning once when the patties release easily from the grate without sticking. During the last minute of cooking time, toast the buns, cut sides down, over direct heat.
  • Assemble the burgers with shallots, mustard, and arugula. Serve warm.

  1. 5 star all the way. The Brie & shalots totally compliment each other. As said in the ingredients use ground chuck 80% lean or a very good grade of hamburger meat - you really get the flavor of the beef. I served the burger with mushrooms as well and Oven browned potatoes - This was a great Saturday Night Burger
  2. I got this email from Weber... it was awesome... made them just as instructed and they got rave reviews from the die hard burger lovers tomato was also a great addition


Born and raised in Florida I can always remember being in the kitchen or out near the grill when Mom and Dad were cooking, kinda like a hungry dog waiting for a scrap, LOL. So anyways, I have always loved to cook, even when I was in the military I had hotplates and electric skillets in my dorm room, no chow hall for me thanks!!! Funny how many "friends" show up when they smelled home cooking!! I enjoy cooking shows and get a lot of my ideas there. Also since I have discovered ZAAR I have gotten a lot of inspiration here. <img src=""> <style>body { background: url("");background-repeat: repeat; }</style>
