DIRECTIONS

  • In a non-stick or well-seasoned cast iron pan, heat the vegetable oil over medium-low heat.
  • Saute the chopped shallot for 2 minutes or until softened but not brown.
  • Set aside.
  • In a bowl, place the ground boar.
  • Sprinkle the thyme and sage over top.
  • Add the worcestershire sauce and pepper.
  • Add the shallot and oil and mix with hands until well combined.
  • (If you are making the burgers ahead of time, let the shallot cool completely before adding it to the burger mixture).
  • Form into two patties about 1/3" thick.
  • Broil or grill until well done, about 5-6 minutes per side.
  • Divide cheese and place on burgers about 1 minute before they are done.
  • Let burgers sit about five minutes before serving.
  • Nice served with a spinach and mushroom salad with a white wine vinagrette.
  • (A note about cambozola: It is a blue-veined brie and has a very mild blue flavour. You could probably substitute a mild blue cheese which will emphasize the sage, or a brie which will add richness. Experiment!).
