We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Burger formation question.

Hello all. So I am doing burgers for some friends tomorrow. I want to wow them yet perfect burgers continue to escape me on the egg. I have 2 pounds of 80/20 ground meat. I like my burgers larger as far as circumference is concerned but thinner as far as thickness is concerned. Every time I get them formed and cook them they shrink up and don't even fill the bun. Does anyone use a binder like an egg or bread crumbs to keep the patty together with a thinner approach? Any and all guidance welcome.
