The patties in these Juicy Burgers are amazingly delicious and it's all common ingredients which you might already have on hand.
I always have one or two Carrots leftover, from maybe a salad or something else, and the same goes for the Celery. Whenever this happens, I try to find ways where I use the veggies and not let them go to waste.
Over the last year or so, I have become a huge fan of anything Horseradish and wiggle a little into most of our homemade sauces and dips. The sauce works wonderfully well with this juicy Burger and adds just that teeny tiny bit of..aah !
To make the Burgers a bit more healthy, you can use wholewheat bread soaked into low-fat milk, as well as using wholewheat burger buns instead of white. The Horseradish and Mayonnaise are both available containing lower fat. I have noticed that the light Horseradish is not always available, so if you do see a bottle, grab one, you never know when a healthy eating streak would sneak up on you !
Other than the sauce, I do not add too much else in order for the full flavor, and juiciness, of the patties to come through. And if you wondered what my favorite method of cooking burger patties is,,,, over the coals of course, always my first choice.
