Burger Know-How
content provided by Better Homes and Gardens® and the BHG.com Store

Shop the BHG.com StoreAsk family and friends for their favorite grilled foods, and burgers are sure to come up. To assure your burgers live up to expectations:

  • Start with fresh ground meat that has no dark spots or unpleasant odors.
  • Handle the meat lightly as you shape it.
  • For even-size patties, divide the meat into equal mounds and press down on each mound with the palm of your hand. Round off the edges of your fingers.
  • During grilling, resist the urge to press down on the patties with a spatula. This squeezes out the flavorful juices and can result in dry, tough burgers.

Follow these simple tips, and you're on your way to delicious burgers. Add buns, all your favorite fixins, and a generous gathering of friends and family. Enjoy!
