    A dash of sweet chilli or worcester sauce can liven them up, or grate a little apple in and use lean pork mince? Thats what I do for the kids.

    Or try turkey mince instead, and add some veg in, like mushrooms or sweetcorn, and maybe a bit of garlic.

    We don't bind ours with egg, but then they are a bit fall-y apart-y!

    We put salt and pepper in ours, sometimes with garlic and chillies too. I top my burgers with gherkin so that makes them tasty!

    Im pretty much the same as everyone else

    Extra lean mince
    Dried mix herbs
    onions
    salt
    pepper
    egg to bind

    shape them then cover and put in the fridge over night if possible, when you come to cook them the next day the smell is gorgeous where they have been marinating all night, yum.

    Sometime i put fresh mint in them as well, they taste gorgeous.
    Last week I used all the above AND extra lean pork mince and they tasted delcious

    I whizz mine in food processor with chopped onion so no need to bind.
    Add salt.
    Sometimes touch chilli/garlic/worcester sauce/mustard powder.
    I freeze them and cook from frozen as I find they are more juicey that way.
