This recipe came from ideas from other people. I read a recipe( I think here on JAP) about adding water to beef because it helps retain moisture. Then on one of the cooking shows, I saw the trick of making the "hollow" in the burger so it doesn't end up " football shaped". I always liked a burger on the grill, but these are like being cooked on a flat top. Gets that nice crust to seal in the juices!
The first time I made these, my husband said, and I quote " I want you to make these, like this, every time! Best burger I've eaten!
