The ingredients & instructions are listed below the video for measurements & directions. Please enjoy this webisode of Cooking with Kimberly:
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 large egg
- 1 tbsp butter
- four 1-1/2 inch wedges of ripened sheep cheese – I used Montforte Dairy Black Sheep Ripened Sheep Cheese.
- 1 tbsp minced parsley
- 1/4 tsp freshly cracked pepper
- 1 tbsp breadcrumbs
- 4 – 5 tbsp oatmeal
- 4 hamburger buns – toasted or not, as desired
- 1 – 2 tbsp per burger of haskap chutney – I used Haskapa Chutney.
- 1/2 cucumber – washed & partially peeled
- Preheat your grill or BBQ on high.
- In a bowl, combine ground beef, egg, butter, parsley, pepper and oatmeal and mix together, using your hands or large fork.
- Cut the ripened sheep cheese into the number of wedges you need for each burger – probably four 1 1/2 inch wedges will be needed.
- Split the meat mixture into 4 burgers.
- Tip: If you are cooking for children, you might choose to make a couple smaller burgers for them, since these are 1/4 lb each.
- Make each sectioned off portion of meat into a flat disc, and then make an indentation in the middle of each disc large enough to fit the cheese wedge.
- Place cheese wedge into the indentation and fold the edges over to encase the cheese completely. Then, flatten to thickness desired.
- Tip: Make sure the cheese is sealed inside, so no cheese is exposed. This way the cheese won’t melt out of the burger.
- Place hamburgers in freezer for about 5 min, or into refrigerator for about 15 min.
- Place on preheated hot grill. Reduce heat to medium. When you get distinct grill marks on the bottom, rotate each burger a quarter turn for a cross-hatch effect. Loosely cover burgers while cooking.
- Flip burgers over, and grill using the same process for the other side.
- Use the largest side of grater to shave thin (paper thin) slices of cucumber to be used in place of lettuce. Set aside to put on the hamburgers later.
- When burgers are done, remove from grill and transfer to serving plates on the hamburger buns.
- Tip: If you like your burger buns toasted, you can just set the burgers aside to rest while toasting the buns.
- Top hamburgers with cucumber shavings and Haskapa Chutney.
- Note: You really don’t need any other condiments.
The sheep cheese oozes out of a flavorful, beefy burger topped with fresh, crisp cucumber & a dollop of unbelievably delicious haskap chutney that makes this a perfect combination.
This is a meal that will please and satisfy. The combination of flavors involved will rock your taste buds.
