Salt & Fat, Burgers


Salt & Fat


Here’s a trick that will make you the star of the grill — put a dimple in the middle of your patty. Just press your thumb about a quarter of the way into the top of your burgers and reshape as necessary. This will keep your burgers from ending up like little UFOs as they cook 1.

1. You may have noticed that patties tend to bulge in the middle when you cook them — that’s because the burger cooks from the outside in and as it cooks, it shrinks. The meat in the middle cooks a little less than the outside, which is what leads to the wobbly shape. Your indentation will solve this problem once and for all!
