    CookinMamaof3's Note:

    I got these from Ina Garten on FoodNetwork. They are so good cooked on the grill, but could also be broiled. BEWARE: these have plenty of fat--not for the faint of heart!LOL

      Yes, my husband says these hamburgers our wonderful! They were very easy to make and everyone enjoyed eating them--very juicy and flavorful. I think this will become my standard hamburger recipe. Thanks, CookinMamaof2!

      Very good. I think it's a solid 4 1/2 stars, but there is no "half" option, so I gave it five. Next time I will leave out the A-1 sauce and just enjoy the flavor of the quality meat and butter! I halved this recipe and made 6 burgers. I cooked them in the frying pan and they were still delicious. The butter is a wonderful idea.

      These were really good. DH liked them. I do think they need more seasoning. They came together quickly, and were great on the grill. Thanks!
