Burger of the Gods

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Christmas Carol

I found this recipe on The Food Network website, courtesy of chef Alton Brown. Simple to make, though a bit pricier than your regular burgers, these are fantastic. Appropriately named, these "steakburgers" are so flavorful they need no more than the kosher salt for seasoning.

These were fabulous! Served with cheddar, sweet onion slice, and lettuce on whole wheat hamburger buns.
