Tips and recommendations before preparing your recipe:

The secret of American hamburgers is two things: A good meat and a gourmet bread. Due to this, when you are going to buy your meat you must select the best, such as beef loin. This is because this meat has a low amount of fat and a high amount of protein and extra minerals.

When you go to prepare your meat, you can do it one day before the preparation of the burgers, this will give it a more concentrated taste. You must adhere all the ingredients together with the meat and mix it. Once this is finished, just put it in the freezer until the next day.

It is important to know that when you are going to prepare your meat the day before, it is not recommended to add the ground bread to it. This is because it neutralizes its taste a bit, we use it only to compact with the eggs at the time we are going to cook it.

The best bread you can use is gourmet, preferably freshly made, or artisan. The reason for this is that the bread they commonly use is hamburger bread from bakeries, but this type of bread will not give you the authentic and delicious finish that we want so much.

Keep in mind, always add the best creams and sauce combinations to your burger, giving it a taste that will surprise everyone who tries it.
