Here Are 5 Eating Tips To Eat Your Burger Without Making A Mess:
1.Turn It Upside Down
Have you ever thought of turning your burger upside down while eating it? While this may sound bizarre, flipping it upside down and using your thumb and little finger to hold the bun from underneath- while your other three fingers hold the top, ensures a firm grip and prevents the filling from slipping out.
2.Wrap It Up
When eating out, burgers come wrapped up in paper or foil. This allows the wrapping to soak up any juices or toppings that might be leaking out of the bun. However, if you're making burgers at home, use a thick napkin to do the same job and keep it half-wrapped while taking a bite.
3.Take Smaller Bites
Now that you know how to ensure a firm grip on your burger- start by taking smaller bites as it allows you to have more control over it and prevents leakage of condiments. Taking a huge bite is likely to send all your stuffing tumbling and we do not want that!
4.Opt For Toasted Buns
Buns that are not toasted are more vulnerable to soaking up all the juices from the patty and becoming mushy. Grilling them for about 20 seconds or so - allows the bun to become less absorbent and provides some crunch to your burger.

Well, you can solve this problem simply by cutting your burger into smaller halves, which will ensure that you do not miss out on any of its deliciousness.
