|4 6oz.||hamburger patties|
|5 T.||good quality unsalted butter|
|1 T.||chives, finely chopped|
|1 T.||parsley, finely chopped|
1. In a food processor or mini-chopper, add the butter, chives and parsley. Pulse until well combined and slightly softened.
2. Take each hamburger patty and make a well in the center. Form a ½″ ball of herb butter with your hands and press it into the well. Gently fold over the outer edges of the burger to cover the butter completely and seal it in. Repeat with remaining 3 patties. *At this point uncooked burgers will last, tightly wrapped, in the fridge for up to 6 hours.
3. Set your grill or grill pan at medium heat. Place the hamburger patties on top and cook, turning occasionally, to desired doneness. While the burgers are cooking, place the buns either on the grill or in the toaster. After they have toasted swipe them with a thin layer of remaining herb butter and set aside.
4. Plate burgers on toasted buns and serve hot.
Go ahead and play with different herbs when making the butter. Strong flavors like basil or oregano would work well, too.
Making the herb butter takes 10 minutes. Pressing it into the hamburger patties takes about 5 minutes. If you like to form your own hamburger patties add on an additional 5 minutes.
We are a family of burger fans and the littlest one is forming her habit, too.
