Peanut Butter Burgers

This really tastes better than it sounds. The peanut butter gives the burger a real nutty taste, and makes it a very juicy burger.

1-1/2 pound lean hamburger or ground sirloin
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic
2 Tablespoons butter, softened

  • Mix all ingredients together until well blended.
  • Shape into patties.
  • Refrigerate patties for at least two hours. Chilling the patties helps hold their shape.
  • Grill on the BBQ.

This recipe is very flexible. Almost any spice or seasoning works well with it. DO NOT add bread crumbs, the peanut butter and the chilling will hold them together just fine.

Doesn’t sound that weird to me. I grew up eating peanut butter and bacon sandwiches (our version of a BLT), and as an adult I realized that it was just such a nice contrast– the saltiness of the bacon contrasted against the sweet nutty flavor of the peanut butter. And Beef Satay is served with a peanut sauce. But, admittedly, I never would have thought of peanut butter in burgers!
