marsala mushroom goatcheese burgers

I combined the things my husband and twin 16 year old daughters love the most...marsala mushrooms and fresh goat cheese and have been making these burgers for a few years and they are our family favorite.


Goat cheese mushroom stuffing:
12 oz. softened goat cheese
1 8 oz. cup minced mushrooms
1 large minced shallot
1 tsp. flour
4 tblsp. butter
1/8 cup cooking sherry
1/4 cup marsala wine
2 lbs. 90% lean ground beef
1 tstp. fresh ground blackpepper
1 tsp. kosher salt seasoned salt
6 (41/2") Kaiser rolls or 6 large onion buns
buttter for toasting buns
vegetable oil for brushing on grill


Preheat gas grill to high. To make the stuffing, melt butter in a medium skillet. Add the minced mushrooms, shallot and flour and cook on medium for about 3 to 4 minutes or until vegetables are slightly golden in color. Add sherry and marsala wine and cook until liquid is mostly evaporated. Allow mixture to cool and then add to softened goatcheese. Mix well and set asside. To make patties, add the salt and pepper and mix well. Form meat into 6 patties. Divide the stuffing mixture into 6 portions and put in the middle of each patty and spread almost to edges. Fold patty in half and reshape into a circle again, taking care to keep stuffing in the middle with meat completely covering top and bottom. Sprinkle with seasoned salt and grill until desired doneness.


Spread butter on cut side of buns and toast lightly on grill. Assemble with your favorite condiments and/or toppings and ENJOY!
