mid-morning snack time.

By now, we've all seen the ads for McDonald's new 1/3-lb Angus burgers. While I commend the effort of trying to push something aspiring toward quality upon the masses, I of course say, why bother?
Please take a moment to watch this informative video on how to make the perfect burger yourself. Chef/restauranteur/cooking show host Hubert Keller shares some excellent tips that go beyond the basics (i.e. don't press your burger). Of course, freshly ground meat makes the best burger, but if you don't have a meat grinder, he does a neat little demo showing how to chop up a piece of steak and turn it into a patty. Then, he makes a sandwich of two patties stuffed with... well, just watch it! Guaranteed to make your tummy growl-- and hopefully inspire you to put a little more effort into your diet than making a visit to the drive-thru.
