- Yield: 4 Servings
- Total Time: 30 Minutes
- 1 egg (lightly beaten)
- 2 tbsp water (beer can be used also)
- 1 slice rye bread (grate into crumbs)
- ½ tsp caraway seeds
- ½ tsp dried marjoram
- 1 clove garlic (finely sliced)
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- 1 lb ground beef
- 8 slices of rye bread (for serving)
- 4 (1 oz) slices swiss cheese
- 3 tbsp mustard
How to Make It
- Heat your grill (charcoal or gas) to a good medium heat.
- Mix together the egg and water/beer. Now add the caraway, crumbs, marjoram, garlic, and seasoning. Mix the meat in thoroughly and shape into four (¾” thick) patties.
- Lay the patties on a greased grill rack, directly over heat. Grill (uncovered), for roughly 18 minutes, turning once halfway. The internal temperature should be 160°F.
- Just before the burgers are removed, toast the bread on the grill lightly (2 mins.). Flip them, place a slice of cheese on four of them and toast the bottoms (2 mins).
- Place patties on top of the cheese-topped bread. Then, spread mustard atop the un–cheesed ones and close the burger.
