Get cozy and get pouring. Our Merlot is the wine for long weekends and lengthy chats.


1 pound extra lean ground beef
1 pound extra lean ground buffalo (if you cannot find buffalo use beef)
1/2 large Walla Walla Sweet onion minced (can substitute any sweet onion)
1/4 pound fresh white or brown mushroom minced finely
1 large jalepeno, seeded and deveined (wear gloves) finely minced 1 TBLSP Steak Seasoning
2 TBLSP Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup good (drinking quality) red wine I like Merlot
1 cup coarsley grated or finely chopped Extra Sharp Tillamook Cheddar Cheese (you can use any brand, I am an Oregonian and very partial to Tillamook brand!)
Spread: 1/2 c spreadable Cream Cheese room temp
2 TBSLP minced Walla Walla onion
1 TBLSP real horseradish



In a large bowl, while your grill pan or BBQ is heating, GENTLY mix meat and rest of ingredients with hands, if more liquid is needed use beef broth or water. Shape in to 6-8 patties (depending on appetites) and grill to desired doneness. SPREAD: mix ingredients together, if it is too thick thin it with a little milk, until it reaches spreadable consistancy.
