For all you raw-chicken-phobes

Until I started teaching cooking class, I never realized how many people out there have a phobia of touching raw chicken. So I thought I would share a little trick for making chicken or turkey burgers without ever touching the meat!

You will need:

Wax Paper and a large cookie or ice cream scoop (make sure it's large. the standard size will make a mini burger)

 

Tear a large piece of wax paper (in the picture mine is probably 3 feet long) and scoop out your mixture, spacing each burger about 3 inches apart and lining them up through middle of your wax paper.

 Once the wax paper is full fold your wax paper over to cover the burgers

Gently press your hand over each burger to flaten

Then tear your wax paper so each burger is individually wrapped (this makes it very easy to get them in the pan without touching them)

Next, just stack and refrigerate for 30 minutes before cooking. (Chilling them before cooking seems to help them stay together since we don't use any breadcrumbs for a binder).

And that's all! Once you have refrigerated them, open your wax paper and flip each burger into the pan. It's an easy method and your hands stay clean!

Now I need to get my Greek Turkey Burger recipe posted so you can give this method a try!
