  • 2 lbs 80/20 hamburger meat
  • 2 tbs Braggs Aminos (use coconut aminos if avoiding soy)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 4 tbsp butter


  • In a medium bowl add all ingredients except for butter and mix together thoroughly.
  • After the burger mixture is combined, score the mixture with your hand making a cross to make it easier to divide the meat evenly so that all burgers are the same size. 
  • With each of the four sections make four equal sized burgers.
  • Press one tbsp of butter into the center of each burger then cover the butter completely with the burger mixture making sure no butter is showing.
  • If cooking on a grill, grill for approximately 7-8 min on each side depending on the temp of your grill and desired doneness. The added fat may cause flare-ups on the grill, so make sure to watch closely. If cooking in a pan cook on med approximately 8-9 minutes on each side or until desired doneness. If you are like me and prefer your burger well done, you'll cook it much longer depending on grill or stove temperature. 
  • Garnish burger with your favorite toppings. 


Note: You can also make smaller burgers by dividing the mixture into 8 equal portions using 1/2 tbsp of butter per burger. This would cut the nutritional information in half.
