The beef Brie burger
Perhaps the best-known soft cheese with a rind in the U.S., Brie adds sophistication to any burger in a flash.
Bacon and barbecue…what could be better? This burger combines bacon’s smoky crunch with crisp lettuce. As a finishing touch—a fried egg.
There’s nothing trashy about the garbage burger: It’s got a sophisticated mix of this and that: mushrooms, swiss and bacon.
Whole cloves of roasted garlic and eggplant bring out lamb’s rich flavors.
