Herb and Juicy Burger

Burgers!  Each time I think of burgers now I can't keep thinking of the infamous "hamboorjer" of the controversial Filipino former COMELEC Chairperson Benjamin Abalos.  He said that his hamboorjer (sold at his nook in a golf course) is really worth dying for.  I wonder if Arroyo is also worth dying for if you ask him at how much he still support the ex president.  Anyways, back to the burgers, the recipe in this article is a personal one.  Since I have herbs in my pantry, I decided to experiment in mixing them together.  The result is quite yummy!  They are quite juicy and you can really taste the herbs in the patties.

1/2 k beef, minced
1 large onions, minced
2 tbsp mustard
1 tbsp garlic granules
1 tsp sweet basil
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp chives
1 tsp thyme paste
1 tsp salt
2 tsp ground pepper
1 egg
1/2 c grated parmesan cheese
1/2 c breadcrumbs
1 tin sliced pineapples
sliced tomatoes
grated carrots
slices of cheese
gerkins pickles
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp dill paste

In a bowl, mix basil, rosemary, thyme, chives, garlic granules, salt, pepper, grated cheese, egg, breadcrumbs, mustard and onions. 
Mix in the beef with your hands.  Make sure that everything is well mixed.
Refrigerate the mixture for 30 minutes.
Make a ball of meat mixture in a size of a baseball and flatten it in your palm.
Fry in a non stick pan until both sides are golden brown.
Remove from fire and place the burger patties in a plate lined with kitchen paper to remove excess oil.
Make the burger sauce by mixing 1/4 c mayonnaise, 1/4 c ketchup, dill and sugar in a small bowl.
Assemble your burger according to your liking.  I added grated carrots, pinapples, gerkins, lettuce and the burger sauce.  My husband added fried eggs to his burger.
