  1. Preheat a grill for high heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, rosemary, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Divide the mixture into four parts and form into balls. Make an indention in the center of each one, and place a tablespoon of butter in the hole. Mold the meat around the butter, and flatten into a patty.
  3. Lightly oil the grilling surface, and place burgers on the preheated grill. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes on each side, until well done.

Fantastically good- though I used 1 tablespoon butter per half pound patty instead, which I think cut down on the "greasiness" mentioned in another review. Also, these were the first burgers I made, and they were super easy and a big hit.

this burger was very meaty and filling, but the butter made it oily and a bit yukky. you could really taste the butter in this and the rosemary taste was a bit overpowering. nxt time ill make the burgers thinner so they arent as meaty, omit the butter and reduce the amount of rosemary

Juicy and tasty. I told my family that we would experiment with different burgers this spring/summer. I thought I would start by avoiding the recipes with bread crumbs. This was the first one I tried. It was a big hit. The spices complement the meat and are not overpowering. I made bigger burgers than the recipe called for to ensure that I could make them medium-rare as my family prefers.

Mmmmmmmmm mmm mmmm....very tasty and juicy ~ and very easy to make. I made 2 large burgers instead of the 4 smaller ones and topped them with pickles, cheese, and bacon (along with my special burger sauce). Great burgers BurqueBoi!

This was an amazing burger. We loved the hint of rosemary. So ono. I think this will be my burger recipe until my arteries plug up anyway :) The butter really adds some juiciness to the seemingly tasteless ground beef I find in the stores these days. I did lower the butter to about 1 teaspoon per 5 oz patty. Next time I will up the rosemary to about 1/4 teaspoon of dried leaves per burger. Thanks so much for sharing BURQUEBOI! You make a mean burger.

I liked the addition of rosemary. I added onion powder and left out the salt. I only used 1 tablespoon butter divided among 4 patties, and I wouldn't use it again. A nice change from our usual grill seasoning.

Extremely good and easy to make.

Sorry we did not care for this. I was looking for a little something different to jazz up our burgers so used a lean meat to off set the fat content with using the butter. It could be we just don't care for the taste of butter in our burgers. And I do like butter vs. oil in a lot of dishes that I cook, just not our burgers. I would rather use a higher ratio of fatty ground beef for flavor than butter. I must say though that I will play around a little bit with the rosemary and some other spices to perk up our burgers a little more for flavor in the future. Thanks for the post.
