Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup whiskey
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons seasoned bread crumbs
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the first 11 ingredients. Add beef; mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into eight 1/2-in.-thick patties.
On a greased grill, cook burgers, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from heat 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160°. Serve burgers on rolls with toppings as desired.
