Spicy Broiled Hamburger Patties

Total Time

I find that using the broiler is alot faster than using conventional baking. I also use an ingredient called Hazel Hamout, which is a middle eastern blend of curry, cayenne pepper, edible flower petals, and rosemary. I found out about it on one of my trips to the Jean Talon market in Montreal. You're most likely to find it in Arab stores, because thst is where I found mine. You can mix curry and cayenne pepper together to give a similar taste. I'll list it below as optional, even though I use it all the time in this recipe.

These were great! Next time I might not broil quite as long.

Thanks Student for a nice switch-up to the normal grilled burger. DH said the combination of spices was nice and he could especially taste the cayenne. That's what I used, but next time will take your suggestion of mixing it up with the curry powder. Omitted the onion per family's request. Very very good. Glad I tagged for June 08's Camera-less Chef~

These were good but I must be a whimp as I thought they were too spicy. It was a good combination but I thought the spices were overpowering. Next time I would cut the spices down a bit.
