Keep Your Hands Clean While Making Hamburger Or Turkey Burger Patties

This Sparked Me!

Here's a tip to keep your hands (relatively) clean while shaping hamburger patties: Wet your hands before you start to handle the ground meat. The patties will be more pliable, and your hands won't pick up nearly as much grease or food particles.

    I actually put my hands inside fold and close sandwich bags... all of the "sticky" is on the bags and I just toss them into the trash.

    I actually like when the fat comes off on my fingers! When I am washing my hands it is fun to wonder how many saturated fat calories I just saved!
