This weekend I opened my special delivery from Tastefully Simple. (By the way, there may or may not have been a little squeal of glee when I saw the box on my doorstep.) I made the burgers featured on the catalog cover. And I heard the words that every parent wants to hear:
“Wow, Mom. These are really good.”
Yes, today we're talking all about … Raspberry Chipotle Glazed Burgers!
Seriously. YOU GUYS. These beauties are smothered with all kinds of sweet and salty deliciousness. Smoky pancetta. Creamy Brie. And a sassy sauce, smoldering with sweet raspberry and a little splash of fresh lime, all piled on top of juicy burgers. But the best part? My kids absolutely loved them.
That's right – my five-year-old and eight-year-old boys devoured burgers topped with Brie and pancetta, and I still can't get over it.
By the way, this quick and easy recipe is included in the Fix It Fast 10-Meal Kit, which includes 10 delicious meals that you can make in 30 minutes or less. So if you're ready to ditch the drive-thru, here's how to make a fresh and fantastic meal your family will love!

How to Build Your Burgers

Step 1: Prep Your Patties
Combine 1½ pounds lean ground beef and 1½ tablespoons Onion Onion™ Seasoning. Form into six patties.
Tip: Indent the middle of the patties with your thumb to ensure they keep their shape while cooking! I always like to sprinkle mine with a little salt and freshly ground pepper, too.
Step 2: Find Your Fixings
Preheat your grill to medium. While it's heating up, get all of your delicious fixings ready.
- 7 ounces sliced brie (with the white rind removed)
- 4-6 slices cooked pancetta
- 6 toasted brioche buns
- Fresh arugula (optional)
Grill your patties, turning once, 5-6 minutes. Brush with Raspberry Lime Chipotle Sauce; cook an additional 5-6 minutes (or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F on an instant-read food thermometer). Top with Brie slices during the last 1-2 minutes.
Place the burgers on buns. Top with pancetta, a few arugula leaves and an additional drizzle of Raspberry Lime Chipotle Sauce. Ta-da!
You'll have sizzling, restaurant-style burgers that taste better than anything from your favorite neighborhood bar-and-grill. No reservations (or extra kids' menu!) required.
Tips & Hints:
- Serve with Roasted Corn on the Cob, fresh fruit and/or waffle fries. Sweet potato fries or onion rings would be delish, too!
- Feel free to substitute crispy bacon in place of pancetta if you can't find it in your grocer's deli section.
- Choose a traditional or double cream Brie. (I used a triple cream variety, but it melted so quickly that I'd actually recommend a less creamy version!)
