Ingredients
  • 1⅓ lb 90/10 Ground Beef (see Tips and Tricks section)
  • 3 - 4 Apples, Cores Removed and Sliced into Rounds
  • 4 Slices Brie Cheese, Rind Removed
  • 4 Hamburger Buns (I use the French buns from the Bakery)
  • 8 Slices Bacon, Cooked Crisp
  • Mayonnaise
  • Dijon Mustard
Instructions
  1. Preheat the grill to high heat.
  2. Evenly divide your ground beef into 4 equal portions that are about ⅓ lb each. Flatten the portions into patties that are a little bigger around than the diameter of your buns.
  3. Season each of the patties with salt and pepper on both sides and grill for 4 – 5 minutes per side, turning once (see Tips and Tricks section). When the burgers are almost done, put some cheese on them, close the lid and let the cheese melt a bit.
Meanwhile…
  1. While the burgers are cooking, grill the apples for about 1 – 2 minutes per side. You want grill marks but you don’t want to turn them into mush.
  2. Also while the burgers are cooking, spread a little bit of mayo onto each half of the bun and toast those on the grill for 1 – 2 minutes, being careful not to burn them. If you have a gas grill, you can turn off one of the burners and use that area to toast the buns.
  3. Stack the burgers thusly: bottom bun, burger with cheese, 1 or 2 slices of apples, 2 slices of bacon, a wee bit of Dijon, top bun.
  4. Enjoy!
