Preheat the grill.

In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for the meat patties. Salt and pepper to taste. To check seasoning, cook a 2-tbsp ball of the meat preparation. Prepare 6 equal-sized patties and set aside.

Halve ciabatta loaves crosswise to get 6 burger-size buns and slice them open.


In a light oiled frying pan or on the grill, quickly brown each side of the patties and cook for an extra 5 to 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, butter the inside of the buns and grill or pan-fry lightly until golden. Combine dressing ingredients in another mixing bowl.

Set patties on absorbent paper to remove excess drippings, then assemble burgers with slices of Canadian Brie, arugula and the dressing.
