Sneaky Three-Cheese Brisket Burger stuffed with Prosciutto

I decided that rather than coming up with the most creative recipe I could think of, I would just make the burger that tasted the best to me and wish for the best. I hope you enjoy it!


Canola oil for brushing grille
3 lbs. ground beef brisket
6 oz. Cream Cheese
2.5 T Grill Seasoning
6 oz. Havarti Cheese
6 Thinly sliced slices of prosciutto
3 t. kosher salt
24 turns fresh cracked pepper
6 slices American cheese
6 Kaiser Rolls
1/4 cup softened butter
2 cloves garlic, halved
6 T Grey Poupon
1 1/2 cups arugula
6 slices tomato
6 slices white onion


Turn grill on to medium high. Brush with canola oil to prevent sticking. Combine ground brisket, cream cheese, and grill seasoning in a large mixing bowl. Mix together with hands until combined. Be careful not to over-work meat. Separate mixture into 12 1/4lb patties approximately 5 inches in diameter. Take 1 oz. of havarti and wrap with slice of prosciutto. Place wrap in center of 1 of the burger patties. Place another of the patties on top and pinch closed around the edges to form your stuffed burger. Repeat with the remaining havarti, prosciutto and burgers to make a total of 6 burgers. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt on each side of each burger. Add 2 turns of cracked black pepper to each side as well. Place burger on grille for approximately 4 minutes per side, until medium. When burger has been on 2nd side for 2 minutes, top each patty w/1 slice of American cheese. Remove from grille once sliced cheese is melted and allow burgers to rest. Split the kaiser rolls and spread butter in thin layer on inside of each slice. Place buttered buns on grille for 2-3 minutes until golden and crisp. Remove buns, and while still hot rub with the halved cloves of garlic. To assemble burgers: Start with bottom bun. Spread on 1 T dijon mustard. Put 1/4 cup arugula on bun. Place tomato on top of arugula. Place burger on top or tomato. Place sliced onion on top of burger, then bun top.


I snuck in the 3rd cheese when the Cream cheese is added to the meat. Brisket is tender and flavorful due to its' fat content, but the cream cheese makes it even more so. I really hope you like it.
