I’m not sure about you, but I reckon homemade burgers are the best. I have read about burger connoisseurs that have mastered the secret to the perfect burger, of course I’d love to try one of their creations. But until then, I don’t mind making my own.
I think the basics of a sensational burger are good mince, the right meat to condiment ratio and how you layer that thing up. I’m not a fan of soggy lettuce, so if I get what would be a fantastic burger and the lettuce is all hot and wilted, I lose interest pretty fast. Putting the lettuce below the patty just won’t work. The cheese also needs to be melted, and the onion caramelised or at the very least fried a little. In this burger I used red onion and I kept it raw as I love raw red onion. However if I was to add brown onion I would definitely fry it first.
