  • Smashed burgers

      Interesting twist on a burger - I felt they were a bit overdone because the patties are so thin. Next time I will flip a bit sooner. Making 2 at a time worked out great for my son and I. Used Boar's Head American Cheese slices - not a huge fan of American Cheese but this brand is good and goes well on burgers. The sauce is a nice accompaniment - I made extra so we can have another round of burgers. Served on potato buns.

      Wow, these were so good! I’ve been wanting to try this technique and recipe for a while, and now my wife says she always wants burgers this way! Amazing that the burgers can be so thin and have all of that great caramelization and crispy edges, and still be so juicy. I’m sure that having great quality beef helps. Excellent instructions, easy and the results were fantastic. I couldn’t deal with using Kraft singles, but was happy to find some Sargento sharp cheddar slices that were super thin and melted quickly. Looking forward to having these again.

  • Grilled peach and tomato salad with burrata and basil

    • Skamper on September 12, 2021

      Delicious. Made an estimated half batch with one peach and one nectarine.

  • Spicy tomato jam

    • Cameronfalls on July 16, 2020

      Made this July 16/20 Easy to make, but kind of eh, okay. It's like a slightly spicy but too sweet ketchup. We'll see if letting it sit in the fridge for a while sparks up the flavour.

Publishers Text

Cook's Illustrated is dedicated to finding the best methods for preparing foolproof home-cooked meals. Unlike some glossy cooking magazines, our magazine is staffed with cooks and editors not food stylists. Our 2,500 square foot test kitchen ó the same kitchen in which we film our public television show, America's Test Kitchen ó has three dozen full-time test cooks whose 9 to 5 job (well maybe 7 to 6 on baking days) is testing and retesting recipes 20, 30, sometimes 50 times until we can offer our readers a recipe we're confident will work every time. (Of course you have to promise to follow our recipes for those foolproof results.)

We also offer ratings and reviews of cookware and kitchen equipment to inform you how different models compare and compete so that you can shop smart. We taste test supermarket ingredients and kitchen staples you use every day, so you know which brands taste best, and which are best avoided. And because Cook's Illustrated is 100% advertising FREE, you get unbiased, objective information.
