Operation Don’t Go Broke: Burgers on a budget
Operation: Don’t Go Broke is devoted to bringing readers helpful tips on ways to save in college.
Sure you could go down to Pilot Butte and buy a burger, but it’s going to cost FOUR times as much as making your own gourmet burger at home.
Follow these steps to grill up a gourmet burger on a budget.
Mix ingredients and form into patties, being careful not to mess too much with meat.
A dimple in the center helps patties keep their form. Let patties set in the fridge for 30 minutes.
For best results, apply cold patties to a hot grill.
