  • 2 lbs. Ground Beef preferably 80/20
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 4 - 6 Slices Brie Cheese or Havarti, White Cheddar
  • 1 jar Queen Creek Olive Mill Caramelized Red Onion Fig Tapenade Jar
  • 6 Sundried Tomatoes sliced
  • 2 cups Arugula
  • 4 - 6 Large Hamburger Buns


  1. Make 4 or 6 patties depending on the desired thickness. Generously sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
  2. Make a thumbprint in the center of the patties. This helps to keep the burger from puffing up in the center.  It helps to keep the burger in shape. Make the burger patties wider than the bun because the meat shrinks as it cooks.
  3. Heat the grill on high heat to create a nice sear on the burger. For medium burgers, cook approximately for 4 minutes per side. For medium-well burgers, cook for 4 1/2 minutes per side. The USDA recommends cooking ground beef until it reaches an internal temperature of 160˚F for safety reasons.
  4. With about 1 minute left of cooking time, place cheese on top of the burger to allow it to melt.
  5. Toast hamburger buns, if so desired.
  6. To make burgers, place burgers on top of the toasted bun, spread caramelized red onion fig tapenade on each side of the bun. Top with sundried tomatoes and arugula.
