Oops. I did it again. I had to make one of our favorite burgers into a smaller slider of a size. Try these Brie stuffed Elk Burgers with sautéed mushrooms and smother them in your favorite BBQ Sauce. Don’t forget to smash them down to release the melted cheese inside.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb ground elk
  • 2 tablespoons Whole Grain Mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 inch Brie cubes
  • 1 cup mushrooms
  • Sourdough Rolls
  • Grilled onions (optional)

Make 4 Sliders

DIRECTIONS
1) In a large bowl, add mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper to ground elk meat. Mix all ingredients by hand. Take a small amount of meat and form the patty. Be sure to make it small enough to fit on a small roll. Press gently with your thumb creating a small indent in the center and add the Brie cheese. Take another small amount of meat and cover the cheese continuing to form the patty. Your sliders should be about 1 1/2 to 2 inches thick.

2) Pre-heat cast iron skillet to medium-high heat. Add a tablespoon of oil to pan and once the skillet is good and hot, add the burgers. Cook the burgers for about 5 minutes and then turn. Be sure not to burn. Cook the same amount of time on the opposite side. Now here’s the fun part… I like to cook mine on their sides, stacked next to each other and rotating every minute until they are medium rare.  They come out a bit Square but still just as tasty! Remove from heat and let rest.

3) While your burgers are cooking, pre-heat another skillet to medium-high heat. Add butter and mushrooms. Sauté mushrooms for roughly 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.

4) Place elk sliders on sourdough Rolls, flatten or smash down on your slider with a spatula  to release the melted Brie, top with the sautéed mushrooms and smother in your favorite BBQ Sauce! Now that’s good!

    I will try this one, using fresh-picked (Wyoming) oyster mushrooms that grow along the creek behind the house this spring.

    Mmmm….Those look really good. I love sliders because one full burger is never quite enough, but two leave me feeling too full.
