Tips for making the best hamburgers:


  1. Use high-quality minced beef with a high fat content (at least 20%) for maximum flavor and juiciness.
  2. Season the meat generously with salt and pepper before forming the patties.
  3. Don’t overwork the meat when forming the patties. This can make the burgers tough.
  4. Make a small indentation in the center of each patty before cooking. This will help the burgers cook evenly and prevent them from puffing up.
  5. Cook the burgers over high heat to sear the outside and create a crust. Then, lower the heat to finish cooking the inside.
  6. Cook the burgers to your desired level of doneness.
  7. Let the burgers rest for a few minutes before serving, this will help the juices redistribute and make the burger more juicy.
  8. Finally, serve them with your favorite toppings, you can add cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, ketchup, mayo, mustard, or any other toppings you like.
  9. Also, you can always experiment with different seasonings and add-ins like garlic, herbs, Worcestershire sauce, or egg to make your burger unique and delicious.

And of course, the most important part…. sandwich between a soft and fluffy Coupland’s Hamburger Bun which you can just so happen order right here!
