   16                    frozen hamburger patties
    4      tablespoons   freshly ground pepper
                         salt
                         butter
                         Tabasco sauce -- few dashes
                         Worcestershire sauce -- few dashes
                         lemon juice -- few dashes
    4      tablespoons   cognac
                         parsley
                         chives
 
 Remove hamburger patties from freezer. Let them defrost as long as
 possible, but be sure to take this into account when cooking (will
 defrost completely in about 2 hours at room temperature). Sprinkle
 freshly ground pepper over all of them, on both sides. Press pepper in
 with heel of your hand. Let stand. When ready to serve, sprinkle bottom
 of heavy skillet with a light layer of salt. Turn heat to high and when
 salt begins to brown slightly, add hamburgers. Cook until well browned
 on one side, turn and cook over low flame 8 to 12 minutes or until
 cooked to desired degree. Place 2 tsp of butter on each patty. Add
 Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce and lemon juice.  Turn heat very low,
 blaze with cognac. Place patties on serving platter and pour sauce over
 them. Sprinkle with parsley and chives.
