A few weeks ago, we were talking burger mistakes. We thought we'd made a list of the most frequent mistakes we have all made, at one time or another, while cooking our burgers. It turns out, there are lot more ways things can go terribly, terribly wrong.
As you fire up your grills (or grill pans, or skillets) for some summer burger indulgence, we want you to keep in mind that your burgers, be they a little overcooked, not quite done, etc., are probably just fine. If anything, they are at least not among the roster of the spectacular burger fails we found below. Did these doomed souls forget they were cooking? Forget what tastes good? Or simply let their nerves get the better of them? It's hard to say. In any event, we'd like to invite you to take a deep breath, enjoy your burger and step away from the turkey bacon.
