I like to make my own hamburgers. I’m not a ‘make-it-from-scratch’ kind of person, but a hamburger? That I can do!
I mix ground beef with an egg and some bread crumbs. I add some salt, and then I mush it all together. Once that’s done I start claying meatballs. And then I squash the meatballs into hamburgers. Unfortunately my hamburgers don’t look like hamburgers. They look like someone flattened a meatball.
So I decided to try a hamburger maker!
A hamburger maker? What’s that when it’s at home?
With a hamburger maker you can actually create professional looking burgers, or so the packaging said. The hamburger maker didn’t come with a manual. Apparently the 4 pictures on the side of the box were supposed to tell me everything. Unfortunately they did not. So I had to figure it out by myself.
And on the fourth day I created the hamburger!
I stuffed the ground beef into the hamburger maker, and pushed the button down. And lord and behold! I had created a hamburger! Look!
They look very professional if I say so myself!
Unfortunately they were quite thick. So I only managed to squeeze three hamburger out, instead of my normal five hamburgers.
I put them into the oven for 40 minutes and then they looked like this.
I only used the hamburger maker once. I felt the hamburgers were too thick, and I had to use too much ground beef. So we’re back to my squashed meatballs.
