The less the hamburgers are handled the better the texture will be. Thus it is best to add salt and pepper and other seasonings after the hamburger is cooked. When cooked, douse the hamburger liberally with butter and add such other seasonings including parsley, raw onion, fried onion, and so on as desired.
The following hamburgers, pan-broiled, are excellent.
