The Hepburn

Okay, so I only named this burger The Hepburn because it’s topped with arugula (popular in Italian dishes) and Chevre (French goat cheese), and Audrey Hepburn is my favorite actress who happened to star in Funny Face (took place partly in Paris) and Roman Holiday (hel-ooo).

Hey, if Waldorf can have a salad, then Hepburn can have a burger.

The Hepburn

Ingredients:
2 lbs. ground beef
3 to 6 oz. Sprecher’s Barley Wine (For extra class. Burger should be moist, not runny)
1 small onion, quartered and sliced
1/2 lb. mushroom
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
Fresh arugula leaves
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. red wine vinegar
salt & pepper to taste
Chevre cheese “sliced” (it’s soft, so do the best you can)

Preparation:
Mix beef and barley wine. Form into 6-8 patties.

Saute onions and mushrooms in olive oil. Sprinkle with balsamic vinegar. Set aside.

Cook burgers to your liking, we suggest browned and carmelized on outside, slightly pink (medium well) on inside.

Toss arugula with olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper.

Place generous helping of arugula leaves on bun. Serve burger topped with sliced chevre and onion/mushroom mixture.

Serves: 6-8 Audrey Hepburn fans
