Recipe by SueVM

I was looking for a different burger and came across this recipe on allrecipes.com Credit goes to the poster who submitted this delicious gourmet burger, MollyS. These take a little time but so worth the extra effort as they turned out wonderfully moist and juicy. Try to buy the best minced beef you can for a truely gourmet taste.

WOW! Made this for my fiance on the 4th of July. Used plain old 85/15 ground beef, so it was only about a $12 gourmet burger, but had I used Kobe or Angus beef, most definitely would have been worth every penny in $20! I highly recommend this recipe if you truly enjoy your hamburgers done right! I'll make it again & again & again!
