Scallion Aioli Sauce and Roasted Beets for the Best Burgers!!
Topping your succulent Duncan Farms Burger with farm fresh goodies, and a homemade ailoi is one of the BEST ways to enjoy summer produce in a new way!
Crispy Scallion Aioli and Roasted Beet Burgers
1 package of Duncan Farms Burger Patties
4 burger buns ( we recommend a brioche bun)
Salt and pepper to taste OR Duncan Farms Burger Seasoning
1 teaspoon of olive oil
1/2 bundle of scallions ( or to your taste liking)
2 small cloves of minced garlic
1/4 tsp of smoked paprika
1/4 tsp of lemon juice
1/2 cup of Duke's Mayo
2-3 beets depending on size of beet
1-2 tbsps of olive oil
Salt to taste ( no more than 1/4tsp)
Duncan Farms Bacon
Scallion Aioli Sauce
Chop up the scallions, and heat oil in a skillet until shimmering
Fry scallions on med/high heat until they start to brown. Once brown , take off heat and let them cool.
In a bowl mix together mayo, garlic, paprika and lemon juice. Stir in scallions once cooled.
Heat oven to 450. Slice beets as thin as possible ( about 1/8in). Toss slices of beets with olive oil and salt.
Place sliced beets on a baking sheet in a single layer, with a little space in between each beet.
Roast for 20-25 mins, until the beets become soft. Beets will shrink in size, slightly glistening on top and will be dark around the edges.
Get your grill nice and hot to start, about 450.
We like the unadulterated taste of our all beef burger patties, but before cooking you could lightly salt or sprinkle on Duncan Farms Burger Seasoning onto your burgers.
Create a dimple with your thumb, or a spoon, in the middle of the burger before grilling. This indent keeps your burger from puffing up and shrinking.
Flip, don't press your burgers! These 6oz burger patties are juicy and succulent, so fight the urge to press them down. If you are adding cheese, add the cheese about 1 minute before the burger is finished for the perfect melt.
Last but not least, let your burgers rest. Let them rest for 2-3 minutes after they come off the grill for the juices to redistribute.
Rare: Cook for 4 minutes
Medium Rare: Cook for 5 minutes
Medium: Cook for 6-7 minutes
Well Done; Cook for 8-9 minutes
Please note that the USDA recommends cooking ground meats to an internal temperature of 160.
For added flavor, toast your burger buns. Place a patty on each bun, top with roasted beets, a generous helping of the scallion aioli and fresh lettuce.
Some great additions to this burger would be crispy bacon, fresh onions and gouda cheese.
