  • 1 lb premium ground beef
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 brioche burger buns
  • 1 cup arugula leaves
  • 4 slices aged cheddar cheese
  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced
  • 1/2 cup balsamic reduction


  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, diced red onion, minced garlic, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix gently.
  3. Shape the mixture into four patties and make a slight indentation in the center of each patty to ensure even cooking.
  4. Grill the patties for about 4-5 minutes per side, adding a slice of cheddar cheese in the last minute of cooking. Toast the buns on the grill until lightly golden.
  5. Assemble the burgers: Place a handful of arugula on the bottom bun, followed by the cooked patty with melted cheese. Top with avocado slices and drizzle balsamic reduction. Finish with the top bun.
  6. Serve your gourmet burgers with crispy sweet potato fries or a side salad.
