Method

  1. Remove the mince from the fridge 30 mins before cooking to reach room temperature. Put the mince in a bowl and mix in 1 tsp sea salt, pepper, the grated onion and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well with your (clean) hands, then divide into 4 equal-size balls. Wrap a basil leaf around each slice of brie and press into the middle along with the tomato and re-shape the meat to a flat patty, 11⁄2cm thick.

  2. Heat the grill for 5 mins. Fit the grill rack to its highest level. Lay the burgers evenly over the rack so they are under the hottest parts of the grill. Brush with oil from the sundried tomatoes and season.

  3. Grill the first side 3 mins for medium-rare or 5 mins for well done. Brush the other side with oil, season and grill for the same length of time. Allow to stand for 3 mins before serving. Pack into a crusty bun with salad leaves, cornichons, tomatoes and relish.

These were a good and different base for a burger recipe. Struggles with keeping the cheese inside but the sun-dried tomato is great, I do love them. Added some Coriander seeds, garlic cloves and paprika, oh and an egg yolk. Went down well as an unhealthy but healthy meal. My partner loved it!

Used dolcelatte as has a stronger flavour than brie which was very good. Put it on top of the cooked burger instead of inside and grilled it for one minute. Also added a rasher of crispy smoked bacon and fresh tomato (instead of sundried) and raw onion on top of two burgers and bacon and fried onion on other two.

i thought they needed more seasoning, and next time i would bind them with egg, as mine fell apart slightly. Also i think mozarella would be better as the brie was virtually none exsistant one the burgers were cooked!
Will try them again with my changes and let you know.

Really nice and dead easy to make. Lovely for a midweek meal as you can make them ahead and then just cook them when home from work.
