READY IN: 2hrs 17mins
Recipe by mommyoffour

These burgers have a strong pepper flavor. If you want it milder just cut the pepper in half. Prep time includes chill time.

Very good. The peppercorns provide a nice flavor to the burgers. I did use Swiss cheese in place of the cheddar. Thanks for sharing!
