This has immediately taken #1 spot in the Silver Screen Suppers burger recipe leader board, knocking Ernest Hemingway and William Holden down to 2nd and 3rd.  This burger was UTTERLY DELICIOUS. Highly recommended and so easy.

Mr R was in charge of this one, and he bought lovely freshly ground beef from his local butcher. All the spices were what posh food writers call “pantry staples”, and for my money, the flavour was SPOT ON.

and here it is in all its splendour!

Thanks, Cybill.

Here’s the recipe transcribed if it’s too difficult to read in the image above.

Hamburgers Cybill Style

Mix 1 lb. extra lean ground beef, 2 Tbs. minced onion, 1 Tbs. coarse-grain mustard, 1/2 tsp. each dried basil, oregano, thyme, ground cumin, cracked black pepper and salt.

Divide into 4 equal portions, form into patties. Broil 7 minutes, turning once.

Split 4 egg twist buns, place a lettuce leaf, burger, tomato and onion slice on each bun.

We have 2 of these in the freezer, and I, for one, can’t wait for the opportunity to defrost them!  Another winner for the Cooking the Detectives book, as lots of people I know are excited about MOONLIGHTING being included.  Currently, there’s no Bruce Willis favourite recipe in my collection, but I’m keeping my eyes peeled…
