Juicy Gourmet Hamburgers

This is a yummy recipe that once again has been made famous by Kittencal. These are very juicy burgers, and the flavor is amazing!! 
 
A tip from Kittencal … to keep your burgers juicy add a 1/2 tbs of margarine to the middle of the burger. Roll the meat in a ball, stick a hole in the of the meat, add the margarine to the middle and cover back up and flatten. WOW what difference it makes!!
