Goat Cheese and Onion Burgers with Garlic Goat Cheese Aioli


Goat Cheese and Onion Burgers with Garlic Goat Cheese Aioli | The Lowcountry Lady

We rented for nearly a year after selling our last house.  It feels so amazing to finally be back in a place of our own.  Aside from unpacking, I've already started to dream about how to turn this house into our home.  Hanging paintings and painting.  Planting flowers and finagling the furniture.  Sorting out how to make each space functional and comfortable and light.

While those plans get underway, we're enjoying simple things like having space and a grill to be able to cook like we like.  I love cooking and eating at home.

Goat Cheese and Onion Burgers with Garlic Goat Cheese Aioli

Ingredients -

for the aioli

  • 3 tbsp Dukes mayo
  • 2 oz goat cheese
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely grated*
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1 tsp paprika

*I like to use a microplane to grate garlic when it is going into a sauce or uncooked dish.  You get the flavor and keep your sauce smooth.

for the burgers

  • 3/4 lb ground beef
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 medium onion chopped
  • 1 medium onion, slided
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 oz goat cheese
  • white or wheat hamburger buns, optional

Process -
  1. Heat your Big Green Egg or grill up to 500°.
  2. In a skillet, heat olive oil for minute, then add onion and salt.  Turn the burner to low.
  3. Continuously stir the onions to avoid burning and cook until soft, 20-30 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, mix all of the aioli ingredients in a small bowl.
  5. Place the aioli in the fridge to meld and setup until your onions and burgers are ready.
  6. Mix the ground beef, chopped onions and Worcestershire in a medium bowl.  Do not over mix!
  7. Form burger patties by hand or use a burger press (we like this one because it leaves a dimple that helps keep the burgers juicy).
  8. Cook the burgers for a few minutes on each side.
  9. Lightly toast your burger buns on the grill if you like.
  10. Add a teaspoon or so of Aioli to the bottom bun, add the burger onions & goat cheese.

This meal goes well with a fresh salad, but tonight we used up some extra Alexa tater tots dipped in the left over aioli - yum!
