  • Lightly oil the grilling surface, and place burgers on the preheated grill. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes on each side, until well done.

Fantastically good- though I used 1 tablespoon butter per half pound patty instead which I think cut down on the "greasiness" mentioned in another review. Also these were the first burgers I made and they were super easy and a big hit. Read More

this burger was very meaty and filling but the butter made it oily and a bit yukky. you could really taste the butter in this and the rosemary taste was a bit overpowering. nxt time ill make the burgers thinner so they arent as meaty omit the butter and reduce the amount of rosemary Read More

Juicy and tasty. I told my family that we would experiment with different burgers this spring/summer. I thought I would start by avoiding the recipes with bread crumbs. This was the first one I tried. It was a big hit. The spices complement the meat and are not overpowering. I made bigger burgers than the recipe called for to ensure that I could make them medium-rare as my family prefers. Read More

I liked the addition of rosemary. I added onion powder and left out the salt. I only used 1 tablespoon butter divided among 4 patties and I wouldn't use it again. A nice change from our usual grill seasoning. Read More

This was an amazing burger. We loved the hint of rosemary. So ono. I think this will be my burger recipe until my arteries plug up anyway:) The butter really adds some juiciness to the seemingly tasteless ground beef I find in the stores these days. I did lower the butter to about 1 teaspoon per 5 oz patty. Next time I will up the rosemary to about 1/4 teaspoon of dried leaves per burger. Thanks so much for sharing BURQUEBOI! You make a mean burger. Read More

Sorry we did not care for this. I was looking for a little something different to jazz up our burgers so used a lean meat to off set the fat content with using the butter. It could be we just don't care for the taste of butter in our burgers. And I do like butter vs. oil in a lot of dishes that I cook just not our burgers. I would rather use a higher ratio of fatty ground beef for flavor than butter. I must say though that I will play around a little bit with the rosemary and some other spices to perk up our burgers a little more for flavor in the future. Thanks for the post. Read More
