Helpful Hints

Instead of laying cheese on the burger patties for cheeseburgers, try hiding it between two small patties and pressing the edges together so the cheese is completely enclosed.

Rather than making burger patties, you can also press the mixture onto soaked bamboo skewers and grill as mini kebabs.
