Recipe Tips

- Look for prepared roasted garlic in jars in the produce aisle of the supermarket.

- Fat is what makes a juicy burger. Choose ground chuck or ground beef that is 80-85% lean.

- Use an instant read thermometer to tell what the temperature is inside the burger. A browned outside is not an indicator of doneness inside burger.

- Don’t press down burgers when cooking or the juices will run out and your burgers will be dry.
