The secret of the perfect hamburger: the meat patty

The world conquest of hamburgers

It is hard to argue that the hamburger is one of the most popular foods in the world. It is no coincidence that more and more people are experimenting with making hamburger at home. Today, hamburgers are not only a permanent element of fast food restaurants, beach buffets, artisanal burger joints, but also a part of home meal!

This may have also been contributed by the fact that, while hamburgers were initially made only from beef, today the selection of meat patties is really mixed - vegan burgers are also increasingly becoming popular.. 

In addition to the meat patty, the hamburger bun and other toppings also create the possibility of creating so many variations that it is practically impossible to count them all. But that's exactly what makes this food wonderful, and that's exactly why we encourage you to make a hamburger yourself!

The meat mass

The meat patty should be made from either beef, lamb, pork, turkey or chicken, the main thing is that it should be juicy! According to experts, the fat content of good hamburger meat is around 20-25%. For the perfect mass, it is worth using a professional meat mincer depending on the quantity, both manual and electric versions are available: the main thing is to make masterful meat mass! (In the case of particularly large quantities, a meat mixer can also be useful!)

And of course, a lot depends on the seasoning! Here, you can really give room for creativity and experimentation! Did you know, for example, that many people in America grate cold butter into their meat mass to make the meat softer?

But even if you don't put butter in the meat, salt and pepper should not be left out! The rest is, so to speak, a matter of taste: garlic, chopped purple- or red onion, cumin, chili, paprika, herbs... Think about the flavor you want and don't be afraid to use the spices that match it!

The meat patty

The meat mixture is ready, you can start shaping the patties! This is what a hamburger press  comes in handy for! In order for the meat to fit nicely in the hamburger bun, it must be nicely round!

It is important to always place hamburger paper in the hamburger press, so that the meat does not stick to it, and you can really shape it to perfection!

Some people let the meat rest for a while before shaping it, others put it in the fridge after it has already been shaped - the main thing is that it is worth letting it stand for a while so that the flavors come together.

Last but not least, pay close attention to this: don't overbake your meat patty! Whether you make it on the grill, or in a pan, make sure that you don't lose the flavor and the juice that makes it perfect!


After baking, all that remains is to assemble the hamburger. 

If you are really professional and stylish, you can serve it in a greaseproof paper bag. And if someone asks for one to take away - say on the way home - then you'll also need a hamburger box !
