Ile De France Camembert Stuffed Sliders


Once again my two favorite words just might be "Free Cheese"--especially when that cheese comes from Ile De France and it is their new recipe Normandie Camembert. Since I enjoyed their original recipe Camembert so much, (evidence of that enjoyment here), I was excited to try the new recipe which is made from the milk of herds that graze exclusively in the Normandy region of France. I wasn't disappointed, the new cheese is very smooth and creamy with a slight nuttiness and some earthy notes.


It was delicious just spread on some fresh bread, but I wanted to do something different and preferably "melty" with it. I had some grass-fed Maui ground beef and some little French rolls both from the farmers market, so I whipped up some Camembert Stuffed Sliders.


With chunks of Camembert inside the burgers (plus a little more spread on the toasted rolls), these sliders were full of oozy, cheesy goodness. Because it is a soft cheese, the Camembert sort of melts into the center of the burger and infuses the cheese flavor throughout. With so much flavor these burgers didn't need much else so I just added some local spinach and tomatoes--also from the farmers market. Very tall mini burgers, very juicy and messy but oh so good.


Thanks Ile De France! ;-)

After the brie-stuffed bobby flay burgers I made earlier this year, I know these must be a hit. Free cheese. Alwyas a good thing.

This is the second blog burger I've seen this morning. It's not even 8:30. Killing me! I'm a little bit jealous of free cheese.

Oh my these look scrumptious! I usually don't eat beef burgers, but with the camembert stuffed inside I couldn't resist! Yum!

Stuffed burgers are a favorite. Stuffed Camembert sliders sound very decadent. With a nice glass of Pinot, who could ask for more?

Stuffed anything is good for us, especially if there is cheese inside. How do you go wrong with lots of cheese?

Deb, these look fantastic -- I love the idea of cooking a soft cheese into the middle of a burger/slider! I can't wait to try this on for size (and inspiration!)

Danielle said...

I think I like burgers...errr...sliders too with the cheese inside better than the outside. Must be all that melty goodness.

Ooooh Deb - they look gorgeous - I've never tried putting the cheese actually in my burger patties before. Note to self - make this for boyfriend next week - he will be very happy boyfriend!
