These burgers would NOT stay together. They were so moist (before I fried them), that I went online to see if other people had this same problem! Nope! If they had stayed together, they would have been awesome! The taste was really good! My 6 year old ate a whole burger, and he hardly ever does that. Still not sure why they fell apart.
