Truffle Mousse Burgers are the perfect burger for your summer cookout or anytime you want a special occasion burger. These taste like you went to the fanciest steakhouse in town and ordered the burger you’d expect to come dipped in gold because of the price tag but you made them at home so you can have your own little victory dance for saving a bundle of money.

The first time I made Truffle Mousse Burgers was a few years ago when I had a party at home for some friends and I’d made a charcuterie plate for a friend who was completely enamored with them (think EVERY time we would go out…boom orders the charcuterie plate). So I had some small slices of a variety of patĂ©s and mousses and my brilliant husband asked if I could make some sliders and top them with the leftover slices. It was….heaven.

Ingredients
 

  • 1 1/3 pound ground Chuck Beef (or 85/15)
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 4 large leafs of lettuce
  • 1 large tomato , sliced
  • 1 Alexian Truffle Mousse (5 ounces)
  • 4 thick slices Provolone Cheese
  • 8 ounces crimini mushrooms , sliced
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

Instructions

  • In a hot cast iron skillet, add the butter, some salt and black pepper (to taste, I used ¼ teaspoon of each) and mushrooms and sautĂ© until browned then set aside.
  • Personal preference, I made 8 patties out of the 1 ⅓ pounds of beef, you could easily do 4 thicker patties, but you're looking for ⅓ of a pound of beef for each burger.
  • Slice your Alexian Truffle Mousse into 4 even slices and add each one to the top of a slice of provolone cheese.
  • Season your patties generously with Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
  • In a searing hot cast iron skillet, cook your patties to just shy (about 30 seconds) of your desired doneness, I go with medium.
  • Place the cheese and Alexian Truffle Mousse on top of your patties in the pan, about 30 seconds before they're done cooking.
  • To the bottom bun add the patties with their toppings, then some mushrooms, lettuce and tomato before adding the top bun.
  • Mayonnaise would be a great spread here so it doesn't compete with all the other flavors in your burger, the Alexian Truffle Mousse is very flavorful, so Provolone and mayonnaise are good complements.

    1. Pate is a little heavier in texture than mousse. If you decide to try, I’d love to know what you think. Thanks!

  1. I love pate as a light dinner along with some good bread, pickles/veggies and a glass (or three) of wine.
    One of my favorite work travel dinners in a hotel room.

  2. I’ve never tried pate or mousse before, after seeing this recipe I need to change that fast 🙂

  3. Honestly I never even had it before so it would be a first time try for me and I think it looks more appealing on a burger then it would anything else.

  4. I have to be honest, I’ve never tried a patte or mousse like this before! The flavors sound incredible though, and this burger looks delicious!! I would definitely make it! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  5. I’m a traditionalist I guess; a baguette, s place of pate a bottle of wine and thou (my husband I mean).

  6. I grew up with eating Pate on crackers, my mom is German so we had a lot of Liver Pate or Liverwurst. The burgers look delish.

  7. I’ve never thought of putting pate on burgers. I hate to admit it, but I’ve only had it with crackers!

  8. I have only had pate a few times and that was on crackers and french bread. I actually have not even thought about pate in years but the burger recipe looks interesting to try.

  9. I just like pate on a cracker. I don’t mean a saltine, but there are a lot of good quality crackers out there. Most at the grocery store.

  10. I’ve only eaten it on bread or toast slices (which I love.) Never occurred to me to put it on a hamburger before!
