Homemade burger disasters - help!

#2
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.

Ive raided the cupboard and added onion, some roasted red peppers ( from a jar) aromat seasoning and black pepper and a pinch of chilli - I will post a pic once cooked.
There are in the fridge at the mo to chill - didnt add an egg but did add once slice of wholemeal WW bread made into crumbs

When I make burgers I always crumble a beef oxo or two, depending on how many I'm making, into the mince. I also add finely chopped onion, worcester sauce and herbs. I Refridgerate for at least an hour so they hold together, spray with frylight and grill.
Yummy :D.

If I have time I will fry the onions first for extra flavour.
