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. Photo via Bing.
