Summer is one of my favorite times of the year to cook and entertain! Everything is so fresh and delicious! Here is the first of many grilling recipes to come. My husband loves this one, and told me today while he was eating it for lunch, that he would like it again for dinner!
Pear, Chicken, Camembert, and Watercress Burger with Sweet Fig Dressing
1 1/2 pounds ground chicken
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1 tbsp light olive oil
8 slices camembert cheese, 1/2 inch thick
1 Anjou pear thinly sliced
4 hotel Rolls, split and toasted
1 handful watercress
Sweet Fig Dressing:
1/3 cup sweet fig preserves
2 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
To make the dressing:
In a small bowl whisk together, preserves, lemon juice and sour cream. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Divide the meat into four equal portions. Form each portion into a 3/4 inch thick burger. Season each side with salt and pepper.
With grill on high, cook burgers using the olive oil to baste.
During the last minute of cooking, top each burger with 2 slices of cheese and one final basting.
Place burger on roll bottoms, top with sliced pear, watercress, and dressing.
Cover with roll top, and serve immediately.
