5 burger tricks from Justin Chapple
- Don't overwork the meat — no kneading!
- Wet your hands to keep the meat from sticking to them.
- Flatten your burger patty by pressing it between two takeout container lids.
- To make patties for a crowd, flatten the meat in a zip-top bag, then create square portions with a chopstick. Freeze to create "break and grill" patties.
- To make sure your cheese melts, add it as soon as you flip the burger.
