    Hi there

    Try adding 2tbs natural yogurt instead of the egg, I find it keeps them really moist n juicy. I also seal them on both sides in a dry non-stick frying pan and then bake them in the oven instead of grilling.
    Sometimes I add things like grated carrot/courgette too.
    Hope they turn out tastier next time...

    What I do is mix the mince with 1 clove of garlic, grated, 1-2 chillies, finely chopped (depending on how hot you like them), a couple of splashes of worcestershire sauce, a crumbled oxo cube and an egg to bind.

    Sometimes with my cheese allowance I use it on a strong blue cheese and put it in the centre of the pattie (kiev like) and I've made the s/w onion marmalade and sweetcorn relish to accompany them so they are usually packed with flavour.

    Hope it helps

    I make my own burgers quite often, using very few ingredients, just turkey or pork mince, onion, herbs and spices etc. I have made them using a chopped up tomato and they were very moist, and I always do them on the george foreman grill and they never turn out dry.
