President Brie Stuffed Hamburgers & Strawberry Brie Mini Popovers

My favorite thing to get to review is food ... lol I know it's so bad but really it's more than the want to eat it the fun in trying out new recipes. My mom use to have Brie a lot when she threw parties but I wanted to do more with it then just putting it on crackers.
Rick saw the cheese and was like you're not getting me to eat that ... oh what he want know won't hurt him. I found a Brie stuffed burger on my favorite meal planning site Relish!. I use cheddar cheese for the kids, but Cole ate his up and then had one of ours and loved it! Walmart has Président Brie Cheese for $3.97 for 8 oz! I was able to make dinner and the desert with the one wheel.
Brie Stuffed Burgers
Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 15 minutes

1 1/4pounds ground beef
4green onions , sliced, divided
2teaspoons garlic, minced
1tablespoon lemon juice
1tablespoon olive oil
4ounces Brie cheese, rind removed
4tablespoons mayonnaise
4kaiser rolls, split
1tomato , cored and sliced
1/4head Romaine lettuce, leaves separated
coarse salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Heat the grill to medium-high.

[1] In a small bowl, combine the onions, garlic, lemon juice and a little zest and mash slightly with the back of a spoon. Stir in the olive oil and a dash of salt. Set aside.

[2] Season the beef with salt and pepper and form into equal-size balls of meat. Slice the cheese (1 for each patty). Form a hole inside the ball, add in the cheese and HALF of the chopped onion mixture. Flatten to make patties.

[3] Grill the burgers, turning once or twice, about 10-12 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.

[4] Meanwhile, mix the mayonnaise with the remaining onion mixture. Grill the buns until toasted and spread the mayonnaise on the bottom of the buns and top with the burgers, tomatoes, and lettuce.

KID-FRIENDLY ALTERNATIVE: Kids might want plain burgers!
ALEXIS NOTES: I didn't have green onions so I skipped that part and we didn't have kaiser buns, so Rick picked up a different kind.
And it wouldn't be my place with out a yummy treat to end your meal with!

Strawberry Brie Mini Popovers


Ingredients:

8 oz Brie cheese
8 - 10 oz strawberries (plus more for garnish)
1 tsp or so of sugar to sprinkle over the strawberries, if needed / desired
2 eggs
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon lemon zest
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 450' F. Liberally grease 24 mini muffin tins.
Divide your Brie Cheese into 24 pieces - Take the outside off.
Cut your strawberries into little bite sized pieces.
In a medium bowl, beat eggs slightly with a fork or whisk. Add flour, lemon zest, milk, sugar and salt. Beat until smooth but don't over beat it.
Fill your muffin tins about 2/3 full
Bake for 5 minutes. Reduce the oven temp. to 350' F and continue baking for another 10 minutes, or until they are crusty and golden brown.
Cut a slit in the top of each popover. Put a small spoonful of strawberries inside and then plug up that hole with a piece of cheese.
Put them back in the oven for 5 minutes. Immediately remove them from the pan and serve.


ALEXIS NOTE: When I made it I think it did better as 12 muffins instead of 24. Mine didn't puff up but it could have been me ;). But they sure were tasty still!

  1. The burgers look great! My DH and DS think they don't like Brie, but I think they'd like it if they didn't see the package. LOL

  2. These sound interesting. I am not sure I have eaten brie. What could you compare it to? You know I like cheese.
