A Tip Everyone Can Use!

Whether you grill outdoors as we do often or make your burgers inside, there is always the job of shaping the patties. I came across this tip a while ago at Savory Sweet Life and got to try it out tonight. The blogger there discovered the butcher using this method at her grocery store. Whether you are making burgers with beef or turkey, veggie burgers or crab cakes, this will work for everyone and it is so simple. Let me tell ya, I love kitchen gadgets, but I hope you haven't invested in one of those burger presses because you will want your money back! All you need is a lid slightly larger than the size of your hamburger bun. I'm positive you have one of these already.

Cover the lid with plastic wrap, just to make it easier to remove the patty...

Press whatever mixture you are using into the lid, over the plastic wrap...

And finally, flip the burger out of the lid and you have a perfectly shaped patty!
