Higher fat means juicier burgers, but it also means shrinkage. Make your burgers about 1/2-inch larger than the bun in diameter to adjust for shrinkage.
For burgers of perfectly uniform size, weigh them or use an ice cream scoop to measure each burger.
If the meat is sticking, moisten your hands with water as you shape the burgers.
Add finely grated onion, chopped bacon, or cheese to the burger mixture.
To freeze, arrange the patties on a baking sheet and freeze. When the burgers are solid, place them in a container, separated by sheets of wax paper.
