Ingredients

 1 cup mayonnaise
 10 basil leaves (finely chopped)
 1 lemon (zested & juiced)
 2 cups blackberries
 ½ cup brown sugar
 1 cup balsamic vinegar
 1.20 lbs ground beef (80% lean)
 olive oil
 sea salt
 cracked black pepper
 4 hamburger buns
  cup butter (melted)
 8 oz goat cheese
 4 cups arugula
 2 cups canned fried onions
 ½ cup dijon mustard

Directions

1

For the lemon basil mayo, begin with a cup of mayo. Finely chop your basil leaves and zest 1 lemon. Add basil and lemon zest to your mayo and stir until well combined.

2

For the blackberry compote, pour your blackberries into a small saucepan over medium high heat. Add brown sugar and the juice from the lemon you just zested.

3

For the balsamic reduction, simply pour your balsamic vinegar into a small saucepan. Turn heat to medium high and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer for about 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. You’ll know it’s done when it can coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

4

To prepare the ground beef, empty into a large bowl, add Worcestershire sauce, sea salt and black pepper. Mix until just combined, being careful not to handle too much or the meat will become tough. With about a cup of ground beef at a time, gently form into a ball, place on a baking sheet and press into the center, flattening out the patty just a bit but leaving a “crater” in the center. Repeat for the remainder of your ground beef. Drizzle with olive oil and a healthy sprinkling of salt and cracked black pepper.

5

To prepare your hamburger buns, simply spread your buns out onto a baking sheet and brush with melted butter. Place in a 350-degree oven until warmed and toasted slightly, about 5 minutes. Then place in a basket and cover with a nice, clean towel to keep them from getting too crunchy upon cooling.

6

Build your burger by spreading the lemon basil mayo on one side of the bun and Dijon mustard on the other side. Place your burger on the bottom bun, spoon over the balsamic reduction, blackberry compote, and top that with arugula, goat cheese and fried onions. Add your top bun and DIG. IN.
