This is from the Pampered Chef cookbook 29 Minutes to Dinner. We really liked these burgers. We could really taste the garlic and peppercorn. They were extremely flavorful and juicy. I used lean ground beef and made 3 hamburger patties. We cooked these on the grill outside for about 10 minutes. We added cheese and turkey bacon to the burgers. These were really quick and easy. They turned out to be restaurant quality burgers. Two thumbs up!
Ultimate Peppercorn Burgers
2 slices firm white sandwich bread
1/3 cup milk
1 tbsp Crushed Peppercorn & Garlic Rub
1 lb 85% lean ground beef such as chuck
4 onion rolls, split
Additional toppings such as steak sauce, sliced tomatoes or cooked bacon (optional)
Remove and discard crusts from bread; tear bread into pieces. Combine bread, milk and peppercorn rub in Stainless (4-qt./4-L) Mixing Bowl. Mix until a smooth paste forms. Sprinkle ground beef over bread paste and mix gently until incorporated.
Form meat mixture into four thin patties, about 4 in. in diameter (I made 3 patties). Grill patties 3-4 minutes or until grill marks appear. Turn patties over using Jumbo Slotted Turner; cook 3-4 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160°F
and patties are no longer pink in center. Transfer burgers to paper towel-lined plate.
To serve, place burgers in rolls. Top with onions and serve with additional toppings, if desired.
**If desired, 3 garlic cloves, pressed, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper can be substituted for the peppercorn rub.
