Graham Elliot, a judge on the hit reality cooking show "MasterChef Junior," spilled the beans to Fox News. Or rather, slipped on the ice as he revealed the secret to making your burgers as juicy as possible.

Having owned several restaurants and received two Michelin stars in 2014, we think Elliot has the experience to back up his claims. First of all, he says, leave out all the extras.

"People always end up doing the same mixture for a burger as they do with meatloaf or a meatball, they put all the pepper and onion in it."

He added:

According to Elliot, you then have to use a single ice cube.

"Make your patties, then put your little ice cube in there and then when you grill it, it keeps it moist and keeps it from getting dried out."

When you're done, you can put on as many toppings as you like to enjoy your-moisture filled patty.

Elliot's personal recipe is found here. He personally adorns with garlic mayonnaise, onions, and some watercress after he's finished grilling.
