How to Keep Your Burger Buns Dry

How to Keep Your Burger Buns Dry


Since mayo and ripe avocado are mostly fats and therefore hydrophobic, spreading a thin layer of it on the bottom bun will prevent the bread from being soaked by burger juice. And they taste good to boot.

    Not exactly what I had in mind.
    I just don’t like mayonnaise in high quantities.
    You sound like every other perverted employee I’ve ever worked with in a kitchen.
    What I meant about the statement, “clean anal eaters,” is for people that don’t want to make a mess when they eat. The anal part refers to their ANAL RETENTIVENESS!
    Not a sexual ize statement like you refered to Pufferfish.

    I never thought of that. Quite ingenious!
    What about the “clean anal eaters’ out there?”
    You know, the ones’ that don’t want to make a mess or get dirty!

    I use cheese slices on the top and bottom before adding the burger and condiments, the cheese prevents the bun from getting soggy too

      Cheese slices get slippery. Mayonnaise preserves the texture of the bread. Cheese makes a sled for the meat. In my experience.

    Water and fat don’t mix. It’s that simple. The fats in a layer of mayo create a barrier that prevents a great deal of the moisture from the burger from penetrating through. I would also suggest toasting the bottom half of your bun on both sides for extra rigidity. Also, put your lettuce under your patties. The perfect burger is out there…

    My mom used butter on my dad’s sandwiches do keep the bread from getting soggy when he worked in the coal mines. Otherwise his sandwich would be inedible halfway through a 12-hour shift. My gram made my pap’s sandwiches the same way!

    I do not like mayo on my burgers, so I use BUTTER! I use no veg oil and cook using lard and mu colestrol is 87! Veg oil is the worst oil you can eat! I use mayo in my coleslaw that is made from olive oil or make ky own fresh, using Alton’s method!
