If there’s one thing I completely stink at making, it’s making hamburger patties. Something that seems so simple always turns out badly in our house. No matter how flat I try to form the patties, they still shrink into a weird greasy ball form. So, to save my burger loving husband the heartache, we now buy patties preformed. I didn’t want to buy conventional meat though, so I was excited to see that both Costco and Trader Joe’s sell hamburger patties.
Costco offers organic hamburger patties at $5 lb., while Trader Joe’s offers grass-fed beef patties at $6.99 lb. I’d prefer a burger that’s organic AND grass-fed, but neither Costco or Trader Joe’s offer that, so I generally opt for the grass fed.
Organic ground beef burger patties, 1/3 lb. patties, 4 lb. $19.99
Grass-fed hamburger patties, 1/4 lb. patties, 1 lb. $6.99
