The steps to making a perfect burger start out with ground meat and buns; the rest is up to you. Set up a toppings bar with all your favorite fixings and let everyone make their own burgers.From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).
I'm starving just watching this episode. I do the same thing with my hamburger buns - butter them and toast them. And I'm with Lucinda, I like my burgers flat and thin as well. I'm really loving this new cooking series.
