Garlic Butter-Burger

Another recipe from my two favorite boys: The Deen Brothers!

What's Needed:
1/4 C. (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened
2 T. parsley
1 large clove garlic, minced
4 8 oz. hamburger patties (the leaner the better--it will help with the points)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground black pepper

1. Prepare grill or grill pan for medium heat.

2. In a small bowl, mash together the butter, parsley, garlic. Form into a log. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in freezer for 10 minutes.

3. Cut a slit 1/2 inch deep into the side of each burger. Cut the butter log into 8 slices; tuck 1 slice into the slit in each burger, pressing it deep into the burger. Pinch the slits closed so the meat totally covers the butter.

4. Grill or broil the burgers for 7-9 minutes per side (medium rare) or 12-13 minutes (well done), turning once.

5. Spread the remaining butter slices on each half of the hamburger buns. Toast under a broiler.

6. If desired, top with tomato, onion, and lettuce.

Husband's Grade: A+
PointsPlus: 10 (WITHOUT the bun!)
