Awesome vid. I also like to sear my burgers in butter and rosemary sprigs

Adrien Renaux says:

He said frenched fries, I dunno if it was on purpose, but as a Belgian person, I have to thank him for re-establishing the truth

U smile is infectious says:

grinded meat should never be eaten raw, I like my steak medium rare, but not when the germs on the surface gets inside

noyeahno says:

Those buns need some more colour. Don't like the look of them tbh.

Dravyn98 says:

If you get to judge me for not using special sauce, i get to judge you for thinking kraft american slices is actually cheese

Just missing beetroot on the burger.

RealFNneatO says:

Gotta whip the mayo before mixing the other ingredients in to make sure sauce isnt chunky

Babish! : ) I love your videos!

30noir says:

Chefs always like toasting buns. Historically it was a way of disguising the fact that the bread was not fresh. Brioche has a similar past.

GladeSucksAtGames says:

Imagine going through the trouble of butchering and grinding your own beef only to cover it in yellow plastic product

Rustyhound says:

This man must use canvases as sheets of paper if those tomato slices are a quarter of a sheet of paper

Kurt says:

Fun fact – the actual burger patty comes from Germany not America. It was known as the Hamburg steak and was brought to America by German immigrants. It became popular at events such as county fairs at which point the bun was added for easier consumption.

Professor raccoon says:
