  2. Form the meat. Make them into six balls of even size. Roll them with your hands. Press the meat down onto a tray to about half an inch thick or three quarters of an inch thick. One can opt for a thicker size but remember that the cooking time will be longer.
  3. With the use of the plastic wrap, cover the said tray. Place the tray inside the refrigerator for a minimum period of thirty minutes. This will make the burgers stick together as they cook. Warm meat will fall apart.
  4. The next step is to cook the burgers. There are many different methods. Try broiling the burgers on a medium heat level. This should take around six minutes for each side. One can also barbeque the meat. This will take a similar time also. Another way is to pan fry the meat. If one is utilizing ground beef that is lean, make sure that you add a bit of butter or oil onto the pan.
  5. Prepare the toppings. Conventional toppings include tomato, lettuce, pickles and onions. But really, you can put just about anything on your burger. Stack the toppings onto the bun, toss in the hamburger patty and enjoy your homemade hamburger!
  6. After knowing how to create your own homemade hamburger, try to spice things up a little. Incorporate some cheeses or other things into the patty to call your homemade burger truly your own.
