As you may know, I'm a big fan of the #SundaySupper movement created by Isabel of Family Foodie and try to participate as often as possible. With my hectic schedule, that's not as often as I might like, but, when I found out we were teaming up with LAND O LAKES® this week, I knew I had to make the time. We were asked to create Simple and Fresh Summer Recipes using one of their newest products Olive Oil & Sea Salt butter. As someone who loves butter, I could not wait to try it out. I knew that I wanted to come up with a recipe that highlighted what's different about this butter, the fact that it has a higher smoke point than traditional butter, so I decided to make butter burgers.
1 lb Grass fed ground beef
4 Hamburger buns
2 Fresh picked heirloom tomatoes, sliced
Salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
Form beef into 4 patties and liberally season with salt and pepper. Melt 1 tbs butter over medium heat in a large skillet and toast 2 buns cut side down until golden brown, remove, remove to a platter and repeat with remaining buns. Once buns are toasted and set aside, add remaining butter to pan. Add burger patties and cook until desired level of doneness is reached, flipping once. Place one patty on each bun, top with fresh tomatoes, salt and pepper if needed. Serve immediately.
