Grilled Burgers

Sour cream makes these burgers delightfully moist, and thyme and black pepper give them zip. These sandwiches are a terrific taste of summer served with tall glasses of lemonade or iced tea. —Jesse & Anne Foust, Bluefield, West Virginia

    We cut the recipe in half for the two of us and substituted Greek yogurt for the sour cream...outstanding! The burgers were so juicy and delicious...we'll definitely be making this recipe again!

    I created an account just to rate this recipe. The sour cream is genius! I used the kaiser rolls like pictured and which i think also makes a huge difference. Super quick too!

    These turn out great every time. A good basic recipe. I used ground venison since my DH is an avid hunter!
