    As it's BBQ season I'm looking for advice. My burgers are always dry! Hard to swallow dry! I use an egg tom purée I don't know what else to try any ideas? X

  3. Leave out the egg. I find that egg in burgers makes them dry. My turkey burgers have grated courgette in them which makes them really moist.

    Again, I don't add egg to mine. Mine are made from just extra lean mince and a grated red onion. I add some garlic and chilli and a splash of soy sauce too, and then I make them in a little burger press. You can get them for a couple of £ on eBay, but they ensure the burgers are a consistant thickness throughout which helps them to cook evenly and stop them from going dry.

    I only added the egg thinking if would stop them drying out! So I'll make sure I don't do that again! And thanks I'll try your suggestions! X

    The egg binds them...other then that I just add grated onion and salt and pepper. I use one egg to about 450gr/one pack of lean mince. If I fancy a change I add some sweet chilli sauce I also do this if I don't have eggs.

    To be honest, you don't really need the egg. They bind just find without it. I never use egg - but maybe it's the splash of soy sauce in mine that helps them hold together? It also gives them a more meaty taste. I also think it helps that I use a burger press, as it does exactly that! Presses the meat together so that it binds and holds its shape.
