Beard on Burgers

The recipe was almost too simple, I thought, when I first read the ingredients.
But I guess James Beard is James Beard for a reason.

So I made them. But I didn't use chopped round or chuck, mainly because I didn't really read the recipe first and instead pulled out some ground meat from the freezer. And in lieu of cream, I used a little whole milk I had on hand from another recipe.
The burgers were simple, but surprisingly flavorful and delicious.
We ate them on buttered buns that I broiled, mayo, mustard and tomatoes.

I realize that the above photo looks ... gross ... but the burgers were great, and that stuff on the side is coleslaw the fantastic Alabama-made John's coleslaw sauce.
