Should you season burger patties?

Chef's answer
That said, don't skimp on the salt and pepper. Season one side of the patty with salt and pepper right before you place it on the grill, seasoned side down. Before you flip the burger, season the other side. ... That way, when the patty gets bigger, it'll stay perfectly fat and flat, not dome-shaped.5 Jun 2014
