    Although many folks use this method of cooking burgers, I have found that most do not...I enjoy a good home-made burger but all too often they end up being dry and hard and not very tasty...The solution simply, is water (or any liguid you would like to flavor the burger with)...

      Flatten to shape the burgers (I stick 'em between two sheets of wax paper and press with my hand) --
    5. 5
      Cook the burgers just like you would normally --
    6. 6
      They will be very soft and hard to handle, so be careful placing them into the pan, or grill --
    7. 7
      GENTLY flip the burgers when you think they are about half done. They will be firmed up good by the time they are done cooking.
    8. 8
      Cook til juices run clear (for well done) but do NOT press on the burger while cooking --
    9. 9
      Works great whether cooking on a grill or the stovetop.

      Put the cooked burger into your favorite bun with your favorite condiments and,.

      I have been making my hamburgers this way for years and everyone loves them this way. I also like to add about a tablespoon of horseradish to my burgers to perk them up a bit.
