  Cooking Hamburgers - Tips and Recipes

There are many different ways to enjoy a hamburger! Not only can you enjoy them year round but you can make them just the way you want.

Whether you are cooking your burgers outside on the grill or inside over the stove, flip your burger frequently because that cooks it more evenly. It is always important to use a food thermometer to make sure your hamburgers are reaching 160F on the inside. All you have to do is insert a dial or digital thermometer into the side of the hamburger to reach the center and wait for it to read 160F.

Make it a family activity by creating different variations to your traditional hamburger. Below are recipes for a Garlic Ranch Burger, Mexican Burger, and Greek Burger. Give them a try and then see what you can come up with!

     

Research on cooking hamburgers has been conducted at Washington State University.
