Salmon Burgers

You don't need to limit yourself to standard beef burgers - there are so many more options.  

I found this recipe on Pinterest and thought I would give it a try (recipe adapted from http://thinkhom.com/salmon-burger-avocado-salsa/).  I wanted to find a healthier burger to include in my family's meal rotation.  

I made this recipe even easier by using a food processor to mix the ingredients.  Make sure to only pulse the ingredients a few times (5-7 short intervals) until just combined.

Use The Burger Master to make eight quarter pound patties.  After filling the Burger Master I placed the container in the freezer for a couple of hours to make the patties easier to handle.

The Burger Master does the work for you to ensure they stay perfect on and off the grill.
