“I grind up some garlic, of course — garlic is so good — and then I take these potato buns and hole them out. Potato buns are great because they are so soft. I crinkle up the little balls of dough [from the potato buns] and I add that with the garlic. I add a little bit of milk and then I take the meat and I mix it all up. I grill the patties for three to four minutes. It’s so easy, and it makes a great meal for the kids and everyone is happy!”

Additionally, he threw in a tip for anyone trying to have a long career in Hollywood.
