How to Grill the Perfect Burger
Let’s discuss a few burger basics before we delve into this amazing burger recipe list! There are a few things in our house that we have found make our burgers the right size so they fit the bun in the end!
- Use a burger press. Ours is aluminum instead of plastic, so it’s lasted for years and is much sturdier to press the meat into the perfectly shaped patty!
- The next secret to the best burger recipe is to put your thumb into the middle of your perfectly formed burger to create a divot. Don’t believe me try it! This will prevent your burger from swelling up into a big meatball when it’s done.
- Don’t press your grill spatula into the burger thinking you are searing lines into it, all you are doing is pressing out the juices giving you a dry burger.
