Patty Maker/Press

We had a birthday party for our 5 years old on Saturday and the last time we had a party, my family or should I say DH family did not like what I prepare. I know they like hotdogs, hamburgers, pizza and potato and macaroni salad. Plus they are not an eater, they only eat so little and my MIL does not anything but organic potato chips and the rest are blended fruits or vegetables. She drinks her food but eats potato chips.

Flatten the hamburger
I went to the grocery store Friday afternoon. While I was picking the ground beef I saw this, a patty mold. I been looking for this thing for a long time because I like making my own patties. I found out Saturday that I need to really press the ground beef together so that they stick together. My first batch did not turn that well because they kept breaking when I turn it on the grill. It was a messed. The second batch I tried so hard to press together. Then it was hard to get it out of the press. I had to run a knife around the side to get it out. Maybe next time I will put a plastic wrap on the press for easy removal.

Press together
This one actually is not what I wanted. However, for now this one will do because I don't have any money to buy the metal one. It does the job and I can make my own patties. I will experiment with the patties next time maybe add some ingredients that I like with it. DH likes his hamburger plain with only ketchup. Sometimes I like a change, it may not be for the good but trying new flavor to know if I like it or not.

Make sure they stick together


  1. The patty press sounds like a good idea. You might be able to spray it with pam or a little vegetable oil.

  2. Thanks for the tip, grampy. I will try that next time.


Thank you so much for stopping and taking a few minutes writing comment. Have a great day!
