  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 cup fresh white breadcrumbs
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 1 tbs chopped fresh marjoram fresh oregano may be substituted
  • 3 tbs chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbs sun-dried tomato paste
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbs oil
  • 4 brioche hamburger buns


  • Mix all ingredients, except the oil and buns, in a large bowl. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions and shape into burgers.
  • Meanwhile, heat a stovetop grill pan (or skillet over high heat) until it’s very hot.
  • Brush tops of the burgers with some of the oil. Place the oiled side down on the grill pan and cook for 3-5 minutes. Before turning, brush the unoiled tops with the rest of the oil; turn and cook an additional 3-5 minutes This will produce a rare to medium-rare burger. Cook a bit longer for medium or well but lower the heat.
  • Remove the burgers to a platter and tent with foil to keep warm. Keep the grill pan over the heat for the buns.
  • Split the brioche buns and place the cut sides down on the grill to toast.
  • Serve burgers on the toasted rolls. You may like to layer some lettuce and tomato on the bun under the burger, as shown in the photos.
