I make up several burger patties in advance with peppers, onions, and spices.

I use wax paper to separate them.

If I put them in the freezer they separate fine.

If I just refrigerate they stick to the wax paper. I don't want to coat the wax paper with oil.

How can I refrigerate the patties so they will easily separate?

  • have you tried using cling film? I use that for sticky doughs and it works fine. – greedyscholars Nov 20 '17 at 20:55
  • @greedyscholars I will give cling film a try. – paparazzo Nov 20 '17 at 21:01

The soft fats from your hamburger are still 'sticky' at refrigerator temps, but once frozen are solid enough that they no longer cling to the wax paper.

I typically use either cling wrap or parchment paper and never have a problem with either when pulling the patties from the fridge.

  • It will take me a couple days to give it a try. – paparazzo Nov 20 '17 at 23:23
