“A great burger recipe that's been under development for some time, and tastes pretty fantastic at this point. I dislike the texture which comes from using eggs in burgers, so this recipe uses a small amount of bread crumbs to bind everything together instead. The spices and aromatics enhance the flavour of the beef and the mixture of oils adds a wonderful smokiness when the burgers are grilled. Enjoy!”
6 patties
