HOW TO MAKE BURGER THAT STICKS TOGETHER WITHOUT EGG
Then to make hamburger patties stick together without egg is to actually use a lower lean-to-fat ratio for your patties. This is what would help stop your burgers from turning into crumbly burgers. With higher ratios like 90/10 there is no fat to bind the meat fibers together. If you use ground beef that is too lean, it tends to crumble or fall apart. If you use a leaner cut, you can add bacon to the mixture adding that extra fat that will keep it together. But you would accomplish this same thing using a lower ratio unless you just want that bacony goodness taste!
It is also best to keep your meat cold before you are ready to make your patties. This will help in forming a burger that will stay together. Also when making your patties if you don’t have a press like the Perfect Patty Shaperz, don’t overwork the meat. Overworking will not only make for a dense burger, but it will make it more susceptible to falling apart.
