    Do you have a calorie count

    150 calories for the quarter pound burger (pattie) if you use lean ground meat . Only 5% fat content . The rest depends on what bun you use and toppings .

    I add some finely minced mushroom into my lean beef burgers. It gives moisture to the extra lean meat, but keeps a meaty flavor.

    just the egg yolk. It helps bind it all together and adds flavour

    My mother in law used to add an egg to her homemade burger mix. She used to tell me that the egg helped to hold the beef together and give the burger a better consistency; just like it does in the meatloaf.

    Looks good. Just because I mess with every recipe I see, I'd add crushed garlic instead of the powder. (I have a garlic crusher and fresh garlic always).
