These Brie Burgers are seasoned with fresh rosemary and garlic and topped with Red Onion Chutney. Add some Spicy Brown Mustard and a slice of tomato and you’ve got one fabulous cheeseburger.
Brie is a soft ripened cheese from France with a rich, buttery, fruity and earthy flavor. It’s a cheese that melts very easily and with that flavor profile, a perfect partner for a burger with brie.
These brie burgers are further enhanced by combining the ground beef with chopped rosemary and garlic. Add some stone ground Dijon mustard a dollop of Red Onion Chutney, which is a delicacy on its own, and you have yourself a French hamburger.
Grilled or pan fried, these luscious burgers will surely find a place in your culinary heart.
The key to flavoring these burgers is to chop the fresh rosemary and garlic as fine as you can. This will insure that the flavors are well distributed.
Let’s take a look:
Ingredients You’ll Need
- Ground Beef, 80-20 Blend
- Onion Chutney
- Spicy Brown Mustard
- Fresh Rosemary and Garlic
- Salt and Pepper
- Brie Cheese
- Ground Beef: A 20% fat blend is recommend, afterall, a higher fat level equals more flavor. Substitute a 93 – 7% blend to save on fat calories, if you’d like.
- Onion Marmalade: Red onion chutney brings such an exciting flavor to the burger, I’d hate for you to substitute. But if you don’t want to take the time to make it, top these burgers with red onion rings or even caramelized onions.
- Mustard: Spicy brown mustard is a great partner for the flavors in this burger. If you don’t have it, substitute Dijon mustard or plain yellow mustard.
- Seasonings: Substitute dried rosemary and garlic powder. But please take the time to chop the dried rosemary into smaller pieces rather than mixing those rosemary spears into the beef.
- Brie Cheese: They wouldn’t be Brie Burgers without brie cheese, but a good substitute is Gruyere or Smoked Gruyere cheese.
Step by Step Instructions, It’s Easy!
- Step 1: In a large bowl, combine ground beef, chopped garlic, chopped rosemary and salt and pepper. Using your hands, gently mix the ingredients together until well blended.
- Step 2: Shape the burger mix into 3 or 4 patties. I always like to make 1/3 pound burger patties. If you’d like you can make 1/4 pound burgers and divide the meat into 4 patties.
- Step 3: You can either grill or pan sear the burgers. No matter what method you use, plan on about 5 minutes per side. Add the brie cheese and once it starts melting, which will be quick, build those burgers.
Pro Tip: Toasted burger buns always add another layer of flavor and crunch. Whether you’re grilling, or pan searing burgers, slather the inside of each bun with butter. A couple of minutes before the burgers are done, place the buns, buttered side down, in a hot pan, or on the grates of the hot grill. Watch them closely and toast them until golden brown.
Frequently Asked Questions

The answer is 3 – 4 hamburger patties. Quarter pound burger patties are the most common sized burger. You’ll make four patties from one pound of ground beef. Or we prefer 1/3 pound burgers, to make 3 patties. It’s all personal preference about beef to bun ratio. If you want to get each burger patty all perfectly sized, use a kitchen scale to weigh out the meat.
Cook until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. Use an instant read digital thermometer to insert into the middle of the burgers for an accurate reading.
Got a leftover burger patty? Just store it in an air tight container in the fridge. To reheat, microwave in increments of 30 seconds until warmed through. Then add your bun and condiments.
