I found this one in the Chicago Tribune's 'Good Eating' section. Haven't tried it yet, just posting for safekeeping. Bergy will probably get to this one before I do :)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 4 shallots, finely sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 lb lean ground beef or 1 lb ground turkey
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- 1⁄2 cup barbecue sauce (use a milder type sauce, spicy BBQ sauce may overwhelm the other flavors)
- 1⁄4 cup Dijon mustard
- 4 onion rolls or 4 hamburger buns, heated
- Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat; add shallots and cook, stirring often, until softened and lightly browned, about 5 minutes; add garlic and cook, stirring, 1 minute.
- Meanwhile, mix beef, milk, salt and pepper in a medium bowl; stir in shallots and garlic; mix well; lightly form mixture into four patties.
- Heat remaining tablespoon of the butter in the same skillet over medium-high heat; add patties; cook 5 minutes until browned on one side; turn; cook to desired doneness, about 5 minutes for medium; remove patties to a platter; keep warm; pour off any grease.
- Add barbecue sauce and mustard to hot skillet; cook, stirring up browned bits, 2 minutes.
- Place hamburger patties on bun bottoms; drizzle each with some of the sauce and place top bun on top.
Simply fabulous! I just finished the leftover burger for lunch. The flavor is so great and yet its so simple to make! I shredded some lettuce and minced some red onion and added that to the bbq sauce mix before topping the burgers. YUM! Thanks for a great recipe!
