Classic Ultimate Hamburgers

Posted by in Shared Member Recipes

Grilling up a burger-one your guests will rave about-isn’t exactly rocket science, but there are a few tricks to elevating your burgers to ultimate status. To prevent burgers from falling apart, turn them only once, and never press on a burger with a spatula. All you’re doing is pushing all the juice out of the burger. Another trick to getting an evenly cooked burger is to put a depression in the center of each patty before you put it on the grill. (Watch the There’s a Better Way video on How to Shape Burgers to see this tip in action).

“My mom’s Seven Layer Dip is a big hit at all small gatherings! Refried beans are layered with guacamole, seasoned sour cream, veggies and cheese. It’s perfect for dipping tortilla chips! The dip traditionally takes less time to disappear into bellies than it does to prepare.”
