Juicy Well-Done Burgers

Martha Price


This is more of a 'tip' than a recipe. I read about this method in an old Heloise 'Helpful Kitchen Hints' book from the 1960's. The original Heloise, who was the mother of today's Heloise.

I made burgers this way a few days ago, and my 'medium' burger was very juicy. Although I didn't taste it myself, my daughter said that her 'well-done' burger was noticeably juicy, also.
So try it and see what you think! Heloise said this method will work with meatloaf, too.

Stove Top


white from 1 medium or large egg per pound of ground beef

Directions Step-By-Step

Beat raw egg white until peaks form. Mix well with ground beef, then proceed as you normally would for your recipe; adding your own ingredients, cooking, etc. You will not detect the taste of the egg. That's it!
