Donut Burgers Save Energy

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

Sometime back in the 80s I had a revelation.  Any sort of burger, be it ham, veggie or cheese (haha) cook better if they are shaped like donuts.  Now, my theory doesn’t work if you like rare hamburgers, but otherwise, it really works to take the middle out of a burger and cook it evenly, skipping the part where you burn the outer rim and one side (burnt meat is a bad no no now) while you are waiting for the inside to get done.

Not only do you get a burger cooked evenly through and through, it comes out more juicy and it takes less time.  Less time means less energy dollars.  With that savings, over a year, you can take me out to dinner to thank me.  Unless of course, you already thought of the donut trick yourself.
