Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Brie and Burgundy Burgers

Turn plain old hamburgers into something special with these red wine and brie cheese flavored burgers. We like serving these burgers on grilled slices of French bread with caramelized or grilled onions and Dijon mustard, but your favorite toppings also work well. These burgers are best prepared and eaten immediately afterwards, but the uncooked burgers can be refrigerated for a few hours before cooking.

2 pounds ground sirloin
3 tablespoons red wine
Freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup Brie cheese

Handling the meat as little as possible, mix the sirloin with the red wine, salt and pepper. Gently form it into eight 1 inch thick patties. Using your thumb, or the end of a wooden spoon, make a small pocket in the center of the burger. Add a tablespoon of the Brie to each hamburger and then pinch the meat around the top to seal the burger. No cheese should be showing. Grill over medium high heat for 4-6 minutes per side, or to the desired doneness. Serve hot.

Makes 8 servings.
