Last week for me was filled with sickness, mommy duties, and general busyness of every day! But that’s life really. I just pick myself up and keep on swimming.
So, over the weekend, the only thing I wanted to do was nothing. I was *this* close in canceling a BBQ that we were hosting, but in the end, because I hate it when people canceling at the last minute, we decided to go forward with it :) Our new friends came over with homemade taro buns and 粽子 (glutinous rice stuffed with different fillings and wrapped in bamboo), and it turned out to be such a great get-together! The kids played and the adults got to know each other over hot dogs, burgers, and chicken kabobs. Summer hasn't even officially started yet, and we have already grilled out twice. I am looking forward in doing it a lot more in the next few months. It's such an easy way to entertain at home.
At our last cookout, the one thing that was missing were some big juicy burgers, so this time, I wanted to add it to the menu. I searched for "juicy and moist burger" online and this recipe was the first to pop up. I figured with 4.5 stars and over 700 reviews, it's probably good enough. The result? Definitely juicy and makes good basic patties, but lack in bold flavor. Next time I will add more spices!
A review on Juiciest Hamburgers Ever:
Result: 3.5 out of 4
Will I make it again: Yep.
Chef’s Notes: The only thing I skipped was cayenne pepper, but followed the rest of the recipe exactly. I even got evaporated milk, even though I heard that it can be substituted with plain milk.
