German-Style Hamburgers

I clipped this easy recipe from the food section of a local newspaper many years ago. Although I'm not sure if it is actually German "style", it was so titled and is quite good! No condiment other than salt is added, so that the pure, rich, flavor of the butter is not altered. It can be eaten as is, but I usually put it on a bun - with no condiments!
