Brûlée Cheeseburger

I picked up Ted Reader's "Everyday Gourmet Burgers" book a while back and I'm trying now some of those recipes... one of it is the Brûlée Cheeseburger... I adapted the recipe a little bit and here's the result...

It all started with the homemade mini baguettes... it's a great thing to make everything by your own and with the pizza stone that I have it's really easy to bake the bread on the grill... the result were two awesome smelling mini baguettes.

While the bread was baking I prepared the ground beef with "Onion Bomb" seasoning, some thyme, dijon mustard and minced garlic... formed the paddies and put them to the fridge for a little rest before I placed them on the grill.

The paddies on the grill

The sliced mushrooms were sauted in a pan with some herbs and the shallots and kept warm until needed. After the paddies were grilled they're topped first with the mushroom-mixture and then with the cheese and then put back to the grill to melt the cheese.

On top some shredded cheese and brie

The bread itself was cut, brushed with some butter and also roasted on the grill. Then some Beer-B-Q sauce on the halfes, fresh cut salad, the paddie on it and... here you go: ready to eat.

And for all of you which are getting hungry now: it tasted as good as it looks... maybe even a bit better...

Ready to eat - it tasted great
