(PCM) Having a large backyard BBQ is one of the nation’s top ways to celebrate the Memorial Day holiday with family and friends. Nothing beasts the taste of hamburgers and hot dogs straight from the grill, but did you know you are probably eating that juicy hamburger all wrong.
Nothing is more annoying than when you build the perfect burger filled with cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and various condiments only have it all fall apart the second after you take your first delicious bite!
A new Japanese study has discovered the root of the problem. We are holding the burger all wrong. Majority of people grip the hamburger with their thumbs on the bottom of the bun, however to avoid the big mess of all your fixings falling out of the bun, try holding the burger balanced with your thumb and pinky finger at the bottom of the bun. The study showed that this improved ones grip on burger dramatically and prevented the ingredients from falling out.
You could also be crafting your burger all wrong. Several sources claim that a burger should be constructed in the following fashion and built up from the bottom. Start with a toasted bun on the bottom, add ketchup and mustard and pickles, then add the burger meat. Next, add cheese, tomato, lettuce, onion, mayo before finishing off with the toasted top bun. The reason for the ketchup and mustard at the bottom of the burger is so they will not leak out all over you and the pickles should be there so they do not overpower the flavor of the burger meat. Definitely a useful tip!
