Cheesy Garlic Bread Burger

Let's talk about burgers for a minute.
We all think we have "the one". The best burger out there. 
Turns out everyone is wrong but me. 
Dude. Don't argue.
It's true.
There is so much deliciousness in this burger that it will have you questioning reality. 
Okay...okay... I see you rolling your eyes. 
Just make this. It's garlic bread AND cheeseburgers. 
How could you possibly lose?

Cheesy Garlic Bread Burger

Garlic Parmesan Butter
1/2 cup butter, room temp
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp dried chives
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded

1 lb extra lean ground beef
1/3 cup onion, finely diced
1 large clove garlic, minced
2 Tbsp prepared Mustard
2 Tbsp BBQ sauce
3 Tbsp quick oats
salt & pepper

8 slices Havarti Cheese
tomato slices or other preferred toppings

Preheat oven broiler. Line a cookie sheet with tinfoil and place open buns on the sheet.
Prepare butter - In a mixing bowl, whisk together the softened butter, garlic, garlic powder, chives and shredded Parmesan cheese. Spread about 1 Tbsp or so of the butter mixture onto each half of the buns (be generous). Set aside.
Prepare burgers - mix together the ground beef, onion, garlic, mustard, BBQ sauce, oats, and salt & pepper. Divide mixture into 4 equal balls. 
Form balls into 4 flat rectangle shaped forms as long and wide as the buns you are using. (See photo below)

Heat a large frying pan sprayed with cooking spray over medium heat. Place the 4 burger patties into the pan. 

Cook over medium heat until burgers are ready to flip over - about 8 or so minutes.
Flip them over and when you do this - place the prepared buns in the middle of the oven, under the broiler. 

When buns are starting to get crispy, remove from oven and place the slices of  Havarti on each half of the buns. Continue to broil until cheese is melty and bubbly. 
Burgers should be done around the same time. (NOTE - If burgers are done before the bread simply cover them off the heat and keep warm.)

Assemble burgers - Place burger on half of a bun .....

Top with desired toppings and then top with second half of a bun.

You are not going to need to add any more ketchup or mustard or BBQ sauce or any of that nonsense. The garlic butter is aaaaaaaaaaaall the flavor you need!
Maybe you need a close up of the tastiness?

See what I mean?
Best. Burger. Ever.
So ooey gooey artery cloggingly delicious.
