Homemade Burgers And Homemade Fries
Best kitchen gadgets for preparing your own homemade burgers and homemade fries
If you’ve found this page, then you’ve likely come here directly from my Kindle book about making your very own ‘restaurant style’ burgers and fries. That’s really the only promotion I’ve done for this page, so it stands to reason.
Now, telling you how to make these wonderful culinary creations means absolutely nothing if you don’t have the right tools for the job. Yes, kitchen gadgets cost a bit of money, but if you find the best quality for reasonable prices, then those tools can last you for many years to come.
The source I use for ALL my home furnishings is Amazon. Simply put, they are the most competitive prices in the marketplace, and it’s so easy to find great deals. I start my search here, and then if I can’t find exactly what I need, then I move on to other sources.
Now, let’s get right down to it, shall we?
Cooking homemade burgers:
Cooking the perfect burgers comes down to just a few things; quality ingredients and versatile tools. In the tools department we have the hamburger patty press and hamburger patty paper. The patty paper is optional, but if you find yourself prepping many patties for entertainment or other gatherings, then you will find this stuff very handy.
Also, you can browse a selection of the bestselling contact grills at the bottom of this page.

One thing that I kinda glossed over in the book is the weighing of the burger patties. It was an oversight of sorts and an edit is in the works.
Ideally, you want your patties to be between 3.5 and 4 ounces, but how to you know when you’ve reached the desired mass? I use a digital kitchen scale, and these things are very affordable, and they can be used for all sorts of culinary creations.

You’ll be happy you made the investment, I can assure you…!
Cooking Homemade French Fries:
For our purposes we will be focusing on making ‘Boardwalk style’ fries, and for those we will need peanut oil. The peanut oil is what gives these fries their distinct flavor. Boardwalk fries are not a crispy fry, so if that is what you are looking for then you will need to use a different oil.
If allergies are a concern, then be sure to purchase a highly refined peanut oil, because the proteins that trigger allergic reactions will have been entirely removed from the oil.
Peanut oil isn’t cheap, but a batch will last you for several uses. Heck, most fast food restaurants only change their oil once a week, and they cook more fries than you can shake a stick at, so to speak.
Also, you’ll need a decent deep fryer and the Amazon site is perfect for finding a great deal on this particular gadget. Just be sure to read the product reviews before you purchase.
If you want to make your very own Cajun fries, then I’ve provided a link to the most popular spice blends in this category. Keep in mind that this stuff goes a long way, so you may not need to buy an industrial size container. Try a few out to see which mix suits you best. Heck, I think Paula Deen has a blend that is very reasonably priced.

There you have it. It couldn’t be any easier to make your very own delicious homemade burgers and fries, especially once you read my Kindle book and seen all the kitchen accessories that’ll help you make it happen.
If there is a demand for it, then I will post links to my particular favorites for each of the category product links on this page. If you want a recommendation for now, simply leave a comment and I’ll be happy to respond.
