Truffle Burger

1 onion diced

2 Tablespoons truffle oil

1 Tablespoon truffle salt

Steps;

  1. Sautee onions and mushrooms for about five minutes, let the mixture cool
  2.  Add truffle oil, truffle salt  and sautéed onions and mushrooms to the ground meat
  3.  Mix with a hand glove!
  4. shape in to patties about 1 inch thick and pat them down in rounds about the size of your palm
  5.  Freeze for about 30 minutes to 1 hour (Note- If you wanted to make these ahead of time you can just leave them in a freezer and once fully frozen store in a ziplock bag. Just let them thaw a little before cooking. )
  6. They are ready for grilling ( I cooked these on the George Forman but an outdoor BBQ or a grill pan is also fine.

Carmelized onions and mushrooms

Steps;

  1.  add 1 1/2 tablespoons of oil to a pan and add the onions on a high heat after a minute of sauteing reduce the fire to a medium heat and let onions carmelize without moving them for about 8 minutes
  2. add agave and red wine to the onions and let it cook for another five minutes
  3. when the onions look carmelized and ready put in a bowl
  4. add another 1 1/2 tablespoons of oil to the pan and add the mushrooms
