Butter Burger

Yields1 ServingPrep Time15 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time30 mins

The added butter in these hamburgers really brings out the flavor. My go-to standard hamburger gives a nod to Culver's fast food chain. Once I tried their butterburgers I just had to bring it home.

 1 pound ground beef
 2 Tablespoons butter, softened
 ¼ onion, finely chopped
 1 clove garlic, minced
 ½ Tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
 pinch cayenne pepper
 salt and ground black pepper
 2 hamburger buns
 ¼ cup melted butter (for brushing buns)

Preheat grill to medium-high.


In a large bowl, mix together beef, onion, garlic, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, and Dijon mustard. Season to taste with cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper.
Form into 2 8-ounce patties. Flatter burgers will cook faster and more evenly.


Grill burgers for 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-well.
Brush burger buns with melted butter and grill cut side down until crisp and golden brown.


Serve with your favorite burger garnishes.
