To Make Them!

Mix the butter, garlic and parsley together in a good size mixing bowl.

Mould the butter mix in to a cylinder shape and wrap in cling film (tin foil or sandwich bags are fine also) and put in a freezer and chill for 2 hours.

Use another large mixing bowl and add the beef mince, black pepper(if you have pepper corns, grab a hand full put in a very small bag(sandwich bag) seal the bag and wrap in a tea towel then go crazy hit any wall you can, or you can just use a rolling pin and give them a bash) grab 2-3 generous pinches.

Using slightly damp hands shape the beef mixture in to x8 - 9cm diameter and 1cm thick.

When this is done place a butter on the top centre of four of the burgers, position the four remaining burgers on top and mould in to a burger shape and also mould the edges together so the butter slices are completely sealed and out of site.

Cover all four burgers and chill for 20 minutes.

When the BBQ is good and ready bring out the burgers and place on the BBQ grill and cook for 6-8 minutes per side until cooked and let all the meat juices run free (depending on weather your using coal, gas, electric BBQ, cooking times may vary but would only be 30 seconds - 2 minutes).

Finally serve the burgers in a bun or with flat breads, a salad and a selection of relishes.


TIP: If there is any garlic butter left then freeze it and use with in two months, can be used as a flavoured butter on lamb or beef steak and joints.
