After forming the ground beef into round patties, flatten them so they’re bigger than the buns. Next, make an indentation in the center of each burger. This will help burgers so they don’t bulge in the center. Cover patties and let marinade in refrigerator for at least one hour. You should grill over high heat to quickly sear outside of burger and seal in juices. Cook 3-4 minutes per side.

  • Marinade patties in refrigerator not at room temperature
  • Try not to move the burger on the grill while cooking
  • Toast bun on grill – you don’t want a soggy bun
  • Add cheese 30 seconds before taking burger off grill
