Burgers: How can I keep burgers from plumping in the center?

Posted By Sara Moulton On June 15, 2010 @ 2:42 am In Cooking Tips,Kitchen Shrink | 2 Comments

Whenever I demonstrate one of my burger recipes, someone asks if there is a way to keep burgers from plumping in the center and becoming smaller in diameter as they cook.

My favorite trick to solve this problem is to create an indentation in the center when I shape the burgers and to make them a bit bigger than the bun so that when they do what comes naturally, they turn out the size and shape I want.
