Coudreaut talks about making a good hamburger:
One thing you could think about is cooking your burger from frozen rather than from raw. I make the patties ahead of time, wrap them individually, and keep them in my freezer, so when my kids come home I can make them a good burger. Another important thing is, always season the burger. Salt and pepper. I think that’s something that people just forget to do. And make sure that you’ve got good fresh bread — a good Kaiser roll, or a pretzel roll, something like that.
