Makes 6 Sliders
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes

There’s something to be said about cooking outdoors and with hunting season just around the corner, I figured now would be the ideal time to utilize some ground game meat from last year’s harvest and share these brie-stuffed elk sliders that I enjoy preparing.

To compliment the sliders, I garnished each one with a few baby arugula leaves adding hints of pepper to the grilled meat.You can always add other garnishments such as sliced tomato and onion. I also prepared a simple spread that combines mayonnaise, dried tarragon, minced garlic, olive oil and fresh lemon juice. The widely used culinary herb known as French tarragon has a sweet aroma with spicy licorice-like flavor and when mixed with the bold taste of minced garlic and a squeeze of tart lemon juice, this creamy condiment will elevate your taste buds with every juicy bite.

  1. In a bowl, mix all mayonnaise ingredients until blended and smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready.
  2. Divide the ground elk meat into 6 separate portions.In a bowl, mix all mayonnaise ingredients until blended and smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready.
  3. Using a mini hamburger press, take half of each portion and place into the bottom of the press.
  4. Add a piece of Brie cheese to the center of the meat and then take the other portion of the meat and place over the top of the cheese.
  5. Take the top handle of the mini burger press and gently push down sealing the cheese in the middle of the meat.
  6. Repeat all steps until all slider patties are formed.
  7. (If you do not have a mini hamburger press, you can easily use your hands to form the slider patties with the Brie cheese in the center).
  8. Drizzle olive oil over each one and season with kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper.
  9. Preheat your outdoor grill to a high heat, about 450°F. When hot, place the sliders on the grill cooking for about 5/6 minutes.
  10. Gently turn and continue to cook until they reach your desired doneness.
  11. (Since all grills are not the same, you may need to adjust the heat if necessary).
  12. To serve, spread a little of the tarragon garlic mayonnaise on both the tops and the bottoms of the rolls.
  13. Add a few pieces of baby arugula and then the grilled brie-stuffed elk slider.
