There is no denying a good burger. Now that I am a grill owner, I am delighted to eat a grilled burger made with all the love in my burger loving heart.

I once saw Ina Garten make burgers and she talked about sticking a tiny pat of butter inside all of her burgers before she grilled them. She said it made the burgers super moist, perfectly cooked and full of flavor. Nuff said....

For the burger:
1 lb ground beef (4 burgers)
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tbsp each, fresh thyme and tarragon
coarse salt and fresh pepper to taste
4 small pats of butter

Mix first 5 ingredients in a bowl. Form into patties, adding the butter into the center and making sure it's covered completely by the beef mixture. Grill for about 4 minutes on the first side and 2-3 minutes on the other, or until done to your liking. Serve any way you like it. Picture with Cheddar cheese, mayo, lettuce and tomato.

You know, I'm not at all surprised that Ina puts butter in her burgers.

Your burger is huge and delicious looking!
