To make the caramelized onions

  • 2 small red onions
  • 1 tsp sugar (brown sugar is best, but whatever you have will work)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 1 tbsp vegetable or canola oil

For the burger patties

To make the truffle mayonnaise

To build the burger

  • slices of brie
  • 4 burger buns (brioche or sourdough are my favorites)
  • romaine lettuce


Make the onions

  • Heat the oil in a frying pan on a medium/ high heat.
  • Slice the onions thinly and place in the pan with the sugar and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Stir occasionally. It will take about half an hour for the onions to cook. When they are done, put to one side.

While the onions are cooking, make the burgers

  • Add all of the burger ingredients to a bowl. Using your hands, mix the ingredients together. Don't over mix! Roll the mixture into a ball.
  • Cut the ball into four, and shape the patties, again, don't overwork them. Lightly cover them, and put them in the fridge for at least twenty minutes.

Make the truffle mayonnaise

  • Mix the mayo and truffle oil together. Put it in the fridge until ready to use.

Cook the burgers

  • Before cooking the burgers, take them out of the fridge and allow them to come to room temperature.
  • Heat a little oil in a frying pan on a medium to high heat, when the oil is hot, add the patties (two at a time if you have a small pan).
  • Cook one side of the patties for around 4 to 5 minutes and flip - they shouldn't be too dark when you flip them over, as you will be cooking this side again.
  • After another 5 minutes, flip again, this time the flipped side should be darker.
  • Add the caramalized onions and then the slices of brie to the top of the burgers and cover the pan with a lid to help the cheese melt. This will take about another 4 or 5 minutes.

Build your burgers

  • Toast the flat sides of your burger buns - not to toast, but so they have a little crisp to them. Spread the truffle mayo over each burger half.
  • Add some romaine lettuce on top of the burger bun and place the burger patty with the onions and cheese on top. Finish with the top of the bun.


  • Use the best ground beef you can.
  • Don't over work your burgers!
  • Brioche buns are my go to for burgers.
  • The truffle mayo is also great for dipping fries!
  • To freeze the patties, after you shape them, layer with parchment paper and place in an airtight container.
