Garlic Mustard Aioli spread:
4 Tablespoons of  mustard
1 large (elephant) clove of garlic roasted
2 Tablespoons Hot sauce
2 egg yolks
1 Tablespoon of chopped dill
1 Cup olive oil
1 ½ pounds of ground chuck
½ pound Polish garlic sausage (pork and beef combination), casing removed
4 Tablespoons of roasted garlic paste
1 finely chopped shallot
1/3 Cup of crumbled goat cheese
3 Tablespoons salt free, Fajita Seasoning or other major brand salt free Fajita seasoning
2 teaspoons of kosher salt
1 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
Vegetable oil to brush on grill
Olive oil to brush on buns 6 Kaiser rolls, split
3 Cups of mixed field greens
1 large beefsteak tomato (cut into 6 slices)



Directions – Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover, or preheat a gas grill to medium-high. To roast garlic, place the large elephant clove along and 4 heads of garlic on a sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, seal foil, place in a cooler corner of the grill and allow to roast for 30 minutes. To prepare aioli spread, place Dijon mustard, roasted elephant garlic, hot sauce, egg yolks and dill in food processor and blend until all ingredients are blended. With food processor on slowly add olive oil until a thick consistency is achieved. Chill until ready to serve. Total prep time including roasting garlic is 35 minutes. To make the patties, combine ground chuck, sausage, garlic paste, shallot, goat cheese, fajita seasoning, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Handle the meat as little as possible to avoid compacting it, mix well trying to achieve equal distribution of all ingredients. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and form the portions into patties to fit the rolls. Total prep time for patties including roasting garlic is 40 minutes. Brush the grill rack with oil. Place the patties on the rack, cover, and grill until browned on the bottoms, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn the patties and continue grilling until done to preference, about 5 minutes longer for medium. During the last few minutes of cooking, brush the insides of the rolls with olive oil and carefully place the rolls, cut side down, on the outer edges of the rack to toast lightly. Total cooking time 10 to 12 minutes. To assemble the burgers, place a generous amount of garlic mustard aioli over the cut sides of the rolls. On each roll bottom, place mixed greens, a patty, and one tomato slice. Add the roll tops and serve. Makes 6 burgers
