Mini Burger

This mini burger is our Saturday lunch. Almost every Saturday. It is succulent, crunchy and gooooood. Noting more to say…………


If you do not want to add the egg it is okay. But you have to reduce on the quantity of the bread crumbs because we put it to absorb some of the moist from the egg.
