3. Season Inside the Meat

If you’re cooking a fairly thick patty, only seasoning the outside means you’re missing out on flavor opportunity! Add seasoning to the meat before it’s formed into patties – it makes a world of difference!

4. Don’t Forget the Dimple

If you want your burger patty to retain consistent thickness while it cooks, push your thumb down in the middle and make a dimple in the meat just after it goes into the pan. This simple trick will keeps it from becoming a giant meatball that you can’t get your mouth around.
