The 5th Sense Burger

Ingredients

  • 1 Rochester Cloud Burger, 3:1 (item #128731)
  • ½ tsp umami dust (see below)
  • 1 oz Stilton Cheese
  • 2 tsp Ruby Port Reduction (see below)
  • 1 Brioche Bun
  • 1 Tbsp Choice of Side

Instructions

  1. Burger cooking 101: Only touch a burger twice once it's on the grill. Once when you flip it and once when you take it off. Do not press on the burger, do not poke the burger, do not bother the burger. The more a burger is handled the likelihood increases in subpar performance and a dry patty. On a 350-degree grill this burger will take approximately 3.5 minutes on the first side & 3 minutes on the 2nd side. They cook quickly!
  2. Season each Cloud burger evenly with salt/pepper. Place on a 350 degrees grill or flattop. Once the burger begins to thaw & form juice pockets on the top, it's ready to flip.
  3. When the burger is 70% done heavily sprinkle the umami powder over the burger, and then top with the Stilton cheese.
  4. Place the burger on the bun & drizzle with the port reduction. Serve with choice of side.
