sfprankster's (mis)adventures with Fire-Green Garlic, Fromage Blanc Stuffed Burgers

Discussion in 'Grilling Beef' started by sfprankster, May 12, 2016.

  1. We begin this (mis)adventure with 1 1/4 lbs of 75/25 ground beef made into four patties, filled with green garlic mixed into Fromage Blanc and a layer of Dubliner cheddar for extra flavor. I like using the 75/25 ground beef for an extra juicy burger.  

    We're going for a very high, direct heat on the kettle for this cook over RO lump, to create a fast sear and heavy caramelization on the burger. It should take anywhere from 6-8 minutes, total cook time for two 2/3 lb burgers from start to finish.

  2. Onto direct, high heat for a fast sear...

    At this temperature, we'll be sending smoke signals to all of the neighbors... [​IMG]

    4 minutes per side creates a nice caramelization on the burger...

    Added some organic spring mix, some of our canned tomatoes and smoked spring onions...

    Sliced in half and plated...

    That looks delicious!   I have been making tons of burgers on charcoal lately!  Nothing like it!
  5. Thanx!!!

    It's a "run down your arms" juicy burger. A little more messy than most of the cheese stuffed burgers we make. The Fromage Blanc, being a cream style cheese, is already soft before receiving any heat from the kettle. [​IMG]
    We had a 10 hour workday and these are actually quick to make. The addition of the green garlic into the cheese center adds a burst of flavor to every bite.
