Backyard Bar-brie-slaw burgers

This is a delightfully simple,yet mouthwatering burger that everyone should be able to make. I came up with it after looking through a "burger book",but found nothing that caught my attention,or was far too complicated for my intentions at the time. I hope you enjoy it as much and as often as my friends and I have.


1/2 a medium head of cabbage finely shredded
1 shredded carrot
2/3 cup of mayonaise
1 1/2 tablespoons of heavy cream
2 tablespoons of horseradish sauce
2/3 cup of barbeque sauce
2 1/4 pounds of ground chuck 1/2 pound ground lamb
3 cloves fresh minced garlic
2 teaspoons ground salt
2 1/2 teaspoons of freshly ground black pepper
2/3 cup finely minced yellow onion
3 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons of Sutter Home cabernet sauvignon
vegetable oil to brush the grill rack
6 onion rolls halved horizontally
18 slices of brie cheese,cut about 1/8" thick


To make the barbeslaw,combine all of the listed ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Cover then refrigerate for 1 hour. Preheat a gas grill to medium high heat. To make the patties,combine the ingredients in a large glass or plastic bowl.Mix well while handling the meat as little as possible to avoid compacting it. Divide the mixture into 6 equal patties,sized to fit the onion rolls.Finally,dimple the center of the patties to help them keep flat while grilling. When ready to grill,brush the rack with the vegetable oil. Place the meat patties on the rack, close the grill and cook. Turn only once after about 4 minutes on each side for medium rare. Place 3 slices of the brie cheese on each patty. Close the grill for about 30 seconds to soften the cheese. Now place the onion rolls,cut side down, around the edge of the grill to toast lightly. To assemble the burgers,place the meat patties on the bottom cut side of the onion rolls. Cover the burgers with a generous and equal portion of the barbeslaw. Place the top half of the onion rolls,cut side down on top and serve.


I have made this burger many time at my house and also at my friends. I always get many compliments and I hope you love it as much as I love making it!
