Rosemary Truffle Burgers

If you're living in the southeast you probably just experienced a massive thunderstorm last night. Hopefully your grill didn't get damaged because you'll want to use it for this recipe. I love a good burger and posting this recipe reminds me that I don't eat enough of them. It's one of the greatest ways to eat ground beef. So American, so easy and so versatile. This variation intrigued me because I thought it seemed so fancy! It had all the ritzy ingredients like fontina cheese, vidalia onions (not that ritzy), freshly chopped rosemary and the prized truffle oil. We actually broke-down and finally bought truffle oil just for this recipe. That stuff is amazing, even if it is priced like gold —tastes like gold too. The good thing is that a little goes a long way and the flavor carries through even on something like a burger. Serves 4. Modified from Our Life in Food.


  • 1 lb 90% lean ground beef
  • Handful rosemary, minced
  • Truffle oil (pricey, but worth it)
  • Salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Guyere cheese, shredded
  • 4 thick slices Vidalia onion


  1. Place the ground beef in a bowl. Add the rosemary, and drizzle with truffle oil. Season to taste with salt and garlic powder. Mix well with your hands, and form into 4 burgers.
  2. Place the onion slices on the grill, and grill until they are nice and browned. Meanwhile, grill the burgers until they’re cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. A few minutes before you take the burgers off of the grill, top with the gruyere cheese.
  3. Serve the burgers topped with the onion slices and drizzled with more truffle oil.
