Where are my burger lovers at? While I do enjoy the simplicity of a basic hamburger, I also crave speciality burgers like my Garlic Truffle Burger.
A Garlic Truffle Burger is the perfect way to make a gourmet burger at home. Truffle Aioli, sautéed mushrooms, Swiss cheese and a juicy burger patty on a buttery brioche roll.

The genesis of my Garlic Truffle Burger came from two places. Let me tell you about them…
We just got back from a family trip to Italy and my 9-month-old daughter ate everything. I’m telling you there was not one thing she turned her nose up at.
Among her favorites were fungi, which are very popular in Italy on just about everything. Translation: mushrooms and truffles. Yep, my 9-month-old loves mushrooms and truffles. Go figure.
When we got back to the states I purchased a jar of Truffle Pate. Not the super expensive “one shave is $100″ truffles, but the more generic kind blended in oil. The kind us normal folks can afford to slather on a delicious burger.
Easy enough to mix with Parmesan and throw on pasta or to make a garlicky Truffle Aioli Sauce.
The next story for my Garlic Truffle Burgers is my recent obsession with burgers. I go through phases.
Sometimes burgers just don’t sound good to me. They won’t for several months, and then BAM. All I want is a burger. All. The. Time.
Well, our return from Italy coincided with one of my “I want a burger for every meal” phases and ta-da: Garlic Truffle Burgers!
It seems that my buddies over at Certified Angus Beef® brand read minds because they sent me a box of their frozen Prime Beef Burger Patties right at the same time. Can you beleive it?
Generally speaking, I prefer to make my own burger patties, but these are really, really good. Frozen and ready to cook, they don’t shrink up, offer loads of beefy flavor and are super juicy.
If they aren’t available in your area, pick up Certified Angus Beef® brand ground beef and make your own. The meat is so good, they don’t need any seasoning. Just form and grill!
Clearly this is kismet. And I wanted burgers. So bad, in fact, I made hubby grill them up during a torrential downpour. He really loves me. 🙂
Here are some easy side dish recipes for burgers!
In a large frying pan, melt butter over medium heat.
- Add slices mushrooms, cooking until they reduce in size by 25% and are soft, but still hold their shape and have some texture. Approximately 8 minutes. Set aside.
- Heat grill to medium-high heat.
- Cook over indirect heat until burgers reach you desired level of doneness.
- Top each patty with 2 slices of Swiss cheese. Close lid for 1 minute. Cheese may not be fully melted, but will continue to melt using residual heat.
- Remove and allow to rest.
- Place on patty on each brioche roll.
- Evenly divide Truffle Aioli and cooked mushrooms between burgers.
- Top and enjoy!
