Below is the method I used and how it became frugal portion control.
Pull out enough plastic wrap to be able to fold in half. Lay it out on the counter and put a ball of hamburger in the center of the lower half of the plastic wrap.
Fold the top part of the plastic wrap in half as seen above.
Then flatten the hamburger to form a size to fit a hamburger bun allowing for any shrinkage depending on the fat count of the meat.
It will look similar to the one above. You can now add the salt and pepper and fry or prepare for the freezer.
Fold all sides of plastic wrap in.
Above is the hamburgers ready to go into the freezer.
Place in a plastic freezer bag or as I have done a washed and dried bread wrapper. Not only do I get a loaf of bread at the Dollar Tree but I get a plastic bag for storage.
Place in freezer.
You now have hamburgers ready to thaw and fry up for a nice yummy hamburger with onions, pickle, bun, and condiments.
Now for the Frugal Portion Control of my blog. I had been weighing out 4-8 ounces of meat and then freezing for further use. Now I just pull out one patty per serving called for in a recipe. This has saved me money as I only use the amount needed. Also if I want a hamburger I can just thaw out one hamburger. So now, I just make a lot of hamburgers :)
