Culver’s Butterburger Recipe

Culver's ButterBurger
If you ever get a chance to go to Culver’s restaurant, you have the try the butter burger. These fresh burgers are delicious and juicy and topped with condiments to your liking. Here is a copycat recipe to create the Culver’s butterburger. It is called a butter burger not because the butter is actually in the beef patty but because the butter is spread onto the bun itself. You can top these burgers with whatever you like. I just did cheddar cheese and pickles. Enjoy.
