A Jug of Wine, A Loaf of Bread and 50 Thou Burger

A romantic picnic is what will come to mind when you taste this mouthwatering burger. The flavors and textures -- the crisp tartness of the apple, creaminess of the brie, the earthy pate --will transport you to a balmy summer day with a picnic basket on a blanket in the park. So grab your special someone, open a bottle of Sutter Home wine, and enjoy this seductive burger together.


3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
1-1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
2 pounds ground chuck
2 tablespoons steak sauce
2 shallots, minced
vegetable oil for grill rack
6 kaiser rolls, split
1 large Granny Smith apple, cored
3/4 pound Brie, rind removed, sliced
8-oz. container of pate mousse


Preheat gas grill to medium-high.

In a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise, mustard, honey, tarragon, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cover and keep cool until ready to use.

Combine beef, steak sauce, shallots and remaining 1 teaspoon of salt in a large bowl. Gently combine mixture, handling as little as possible. Shape into six patties.

Brush heated grill rack with vegetable oil. Place patties on grill, cover, and cook 4 to 5 minutes per side. During last few minutes of cooking, place rolls (cut side down) on outer edges of grill rack to toast lightly.

Meanwhile, cut apple into six slices, discarding ends.

To assemble, spread bottom of each bun with mayonnaise mixture. Top with a hot burger, sliced brie and an apple slice. Spread toasted bun tops with pate mousse and place on top of the apple slices. Serve and enjoy!
