Bonus Tips for Better Burgers:

  • Add a beaten egg to burger mix for rich flavour and to help bind meat
  • Add a heaping spoonful or two of toasted bread crumbs or Panko for added flavour and as a meat binder
  • Stir in a few spoonfuls of grated onion for added flavour and to keep burgers moist
  • To keep patties from bulging in the middle while cooking, make an indent in centre of each patty with the back of a spoon before grilling
  • To keep patties from sticking to grill grate, start with a lightly greased hot grill
  • Flip burgers as needed but resist the urge to press down on patties with a spatula as this will squeeze out flavourful juices while cooking
