Do you like bleu cheese? Mushrooms? Truffles? This is my spin on another dish I just had at a place called Gold Nugget. Everything about it was amazing and has me craving burgers. You don't need to splurge on Truffle Oil like I did, but man, I would recommend it!
1 lb. good quality ground beef
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper
1-2 large shallots, peeled and sliced thin
1 10 oz. container mushrooms, sliced
1/4 C. blackberry preserves
5 oz. bleu cheese crumbles
truffle oil (optional)
In a medium bowl, mix the ground beef, worcestershire, and salt and pepper together. Divide the mixture into 3 or 4 patties (I'd recommend 3). Next, preheat the grill, and start the mushroom mixture. In a medium skillet over medium heat, add one tablespoon olive oil and add the mushrooms and shallots. Saute and stir until the mushrooms are cooked through and shallots are translucent. Set aside to cool. Now it's time to cook the burgers. Cook over high heat 4-5 minutes per side or until inside reaches 165 degrees. Remove from grill. Spread one tablespoon of the blackberry preserves on each patty. Top with blue cheese, then mushroom mixture and a drizzle of the truffle oil. Sandwich between a bun and enjoy.
