Leave it Paula Deen to find yet another place to put butter :)

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Prepare grill for medium direct heat or preheat broiler.
  2. In a small bowl, mash together the butter, parsley, garlic and lemon zest. Form the mixture into a log, wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the beef, salt and pepper. Form into 4 patties about 1 inch thick; place on a rimmed baking sheet. Cut a slit 1/2" deep into the side of each burger. Cut the butter log into 8 slices; tuck 1 slice into the slit in each burger, pressing it deep into the burger. Pinch the slits closed so the meat totally covers the butter.
  4. Grill or broil the burgers for 7 to 9 minutes for medium rare, turning once. Top burgers with the remaining butter slices serve with desired condiments.
