Peppercorn Burgers

Attention all black pepper lovers:  THIS RECIPE IS FOR YOU!!!  Here's a yummy, peppery twist on a tasty grilled burger.  Love it!  Enjoy :)

2 pounds lean ground beef
2 TBSP Dijon mustard
2 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp salt
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 TBSP coarsely cracked black pepper
6 slices Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers (if your feeling brave)
6 kaiser rolls, split (or a plain ol' bun)

Mix all ingredients except pepper, cheese and rolls.  Shape into 6 patties about 3/4 inch thick.  Press 3/4 teaspoon of the pepper into each side of each patty.  Cover and refrigerate 2 hrs. before grilling.  Heat coals or gas grill.  Grill patties uncovered about 4 inches from meduim heat 12-17 minutes, turning once, until no longer pink and center juice is clear.  Top each burger with cheese slice for last 2 minutes of grilling.   Serve on rolls.

*If you love cracked pepper like me, use up to 1 TBSP for each burger for a strong bite!

I like the bold kick the black pepper would give.
