Today, I will be teaching you how to make water burgers. Yessss, that’s what I said…WATER BURGERS! You will not believe the difference that, cooking burgers in water instead of oil, can make. For starters, it’s easier on the stomach because too much grease in food can make some people, like me, sick to their stomachs. I really mean it when I say it tastes better than the average burger. Waterburgers are so delicious that you can rewarm these jokers and they will still taste fabulous!
