What is a Butter Burger?
A butter burger is a hamburger patty that has been molded around a pat of butter. The idea is that as the patty cooks the butter melts and creates a pocket of rich buttery goodness in the center of the burger. The best results come when you incorporate flavorful ingredients into the butter like garlic, herbs, chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, etc. You can use your imagination and create a really unique flavor using the butter burger technique.
Here’s what you do: soften some butter and mix in your flavorings. Let’s say chopped garlic, blue cheese and a little Worcestershire sauce. Mix them until well combined and form them into a log on top of a piece of waxed paper. Now roll the butter log up in the waxed paper and refrigerate.
Grab as much ground beef as you would normally use for a hamburger patty and divide it in half. Press both halves into a thin patty and set a couple of slices of your chilled blue cheese butter on top of one. Place the other half on top of the buttered one and seal the edges well. Cook the burger as you normally would and serve it on a toasted bun with your favorite toppings.
