Fluffy burgers


What are we going to build again? This bounces on the wall! A nice! Βricks are for lunch today!

These are some of the comments made in my kitchen, when we were having burgers. Ah... great burger stories! Usually burgers came out heavy like stone or they had a straw flavor. Thru the years, I trusted various "remedies" for my burgers. One was saying add vinegar for fluffier burgers, the other one, add tomato cubes to make it juicy, the next one, put breadcrumbs ... and many more tricks were heard. But for some reason, I never had the combination of tasty and fluffy burger.

Till I found the recipe I'm sharing with you. Fluffy, juicy and delicious burgers. And of course the recipe is a standard for me. A recipe that always succeeds, and gave an end to the various comments about "bricks" ... lol. When I firstly tried the recipe, I was surprised by the very soft and perhaps "watery" mixture. I was wondering how this would end up to burgers! But it does. With the same mixture, replacing parsley with mint, I made heavenly fried meatballs. This recipe always turns out great.

So the search for fluffy burgers is over. I hope for some of you too.
