So, let’s roll up our sleeves and get the ball – or rather, the patty – rolling! Pick up the freshest beef you can, ignoring those pre-made patties. Now I know what you’re thinking, But that’s the shortcut! False! The real trick lies in the divot. Ever heard of it? It’s the pit you indent in the centre of your patties. That unsung hero literally ensures your burger doesn’t puff up like a balloon when you’re cooking it. Pure genius, huh?

Let’s Make It!

  • Start by grabbing a pound of fresh ground beef for about four burgers.
  • Divide the beef into four equal portions.
  • Roll each portion into a round ball, then flatten it into a patty. Remember to make a small indent in the center of each patty to prevent ballooning during cooking.
  • Preheat your grill or frying pan to a medium-high temperature.
  • Season the patties with salt and pepper, or your favorite burger seasoning.
  • Place your patties on the grill or pan, being sure to place the indented side up.
  • Cook the patties for about 4 minutes on each side for a medium-rare burger, flipping only once.
  • While the patties are cooking, prepare your preferred toppings – lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onions, cheese, etc.
  • Get your buns ready – you can toast them if you prefer.
  • Once your patties are cooked to your preferred doneness, place them on your buns.
  • Add your toppings, don’t forget the mustard, mayo, ketchup, or whatever tickles your taste buds.
  • Now, press the top bun onto your masterpiece.
  • There we go, your delicious homemade hamburger is ready to serve and enjoy!

That Was Quick!
