Portabella mushrooms, black beans and sweet potatoes all make flavorful burgers – especially when combined with Ile de France cheeses. So don't limit yourself to beef this summer – add these fun alternatives to your cookout menus!
Portabella Mushroom Burger
Lusciously melted Chaumes Cheese and the earthy, hearty flavor of portabella mushrooms is a delightful alternative to hamburgers and other summer sandwiches.
Black Bean Burger with Goat Cheese
Black bean burgers are delicious and full of vitamins and protein. To make the black bean patties, simply mash 1 cup black beans with 1 cup cooked farro grains. Add spices to taste (garlic, cumin and paprika are great options). Once shape into burgers, grill them just like regular burgers, then top with Ile de France Goat Cheese for a refreshing tang that balances out the spices.
Sweet Potato Burgers with Brie Cheese
Sweet potatoes pack a naturally sweet flavor and are packed full of vitamins. To make sweet potato patties, add 1 cup of cooked diced sweet potatoes, 15 oz of cannelini beans, 1 ½ cups panko crumbs, 1 egg, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoons of pepper, paprika, and oregano into a food processor. Pulse until smooth, then form into patties and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side. Before the burgers are done, add sliced Ile de France Brie and let it melt. The creamy, savory flavor of Brie blends perfectly and contrasts with the patty's crisp texture and sweet flavor.
