We had some super warm days here in New England which seemed like perfect timing for a burger. This burger had dried cranberries mixed into it, brie on top, and a lemon-y aoli. Jazzing up the aoli or ketchup definitely makes a burger feel more special. Lemon pepper aoli spread is so easy and I used some leftovers for egg salad.
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 tsp garlic, minced
2 tbs mayo
1 tsp lemon juice
Mix together the ground meat, cranberries, garlic, and salt & pepper.
Then form into patties and grill until cooked through.
Mix together the mayo, lemon juice, and pepper.
When the burgers are mostly cooked, top with brie until melted.
Serve with some dijon mustard and lemon/pepper aoli.
These were great. I liked the chewy and tartness the cranberries added with the creamy brie. So good. The zing of the aoli kept it from being too rich. These were good burgers and seemingly appropriate for winter burgers!
