How to Form Perfect Hamburger Patties

Having trouble forming burgers? With this easy tip, your burgers are sure to come out even every time.

For shaping hamburger patties, use the lid of a gallon jar. First form the burger meat into rounds about the size of a tennis ball. Each will make about an 8-oz. uncooked patty. Cover the rounds with waxed paper, and press down with the lid. The burgers will be just the right diameter and thickness. Leave the waxed paper in place for stacking and storing or freezing.
