    I found this out too. The best way, in my opinion, to make them a little moister is to add finely chopped onion into the mix.

    Did you use an egg when preparing them and how did you cook them? I find if they're grilled or cooked in the oven they tend to be very dry so I pop them in the griddle pan with a spray of FryLight.

    I add seasoning and finely chopped onion to my mix- and don't overcook them. I fry them (fry light) in a REALLY hot pan for about 2-3 minutes each side so that they go nicely charred on the outside but still stay lovely and moist on the inside- almost meduim rare

    I always mix (a lot of!!) Bovril in with my meat - makes a very moist burger - and a lovely sticky juice to treat myself with while waiting to finish cooking!

    The amount of times I eat home-made SW burgers per week is ridiculous! Nobody believes I've lost 3 stone (so far) by eating burger and chips 3 times a week:D

    Here is my recipe:
    Dry Fry Extra Lean Lamb mince then drain all excess fat.
    Season with salt/pepper and lots of dried mint.
    Crumble in Extra Lean Beef mince - add garlic and chilli ( I use lazy garlic/chilli)
    I then pour over a stupid amount of Bovril - buy the catering size from Costco (much more reasonable)
    Then get my hands in and REALLY combine all ingredients
    Then make burger shapes round a babybel light cheddar.
    Dry fry each side for 1 min then transfer into the oven to cook through...

    This dish keeps me on the straight and narrow and makes me forget I'm on a diet!

    Hope you enjoy

    Yes it is Kaz...I only dry fry the lamb because of all the fat that comes out of it.
