Pan-Seared Burgers

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Little Chef

This recipe came from my local newspaper. I haven't tried it yet but sounds great. Burgers to be cooked in a skillet or under the broiler or even the barbecue for diehard barbecuers. You can double the recipe and freeze the patties in a freezer bag for up to one month.
