This is based off of an Ina Garten recipe, changed slightly due to personal preference. This is a moist and flavorful burger that my whole family loves. If you're tired of the same ol' same ol' burger, give this a try! You can either use an outdoor grill or an indoor grill pan. Can easily be doubled, etc..

Nice Burger! I made as directed except I used 2 yolks instead of 3 and 1/2 t. kosher salt since I had 1.25 pounds of meat. Made for Ausie Swap #34. Thanks LIG.
