Substitution for egg to bind hamburger mince

  • My wife is having pregnancy cravings for (homemade) hamburgers, but has developed a prenatal allergy / intolerance to egg.

    What is a possible replacement for egg to stop a hamburger pattie from collapsing into mince during cooking?

    I never use egg in my burgers, just beef and pepper. Salt added to the outside immediately before cooking.

    A bit of corn starch would help if you cannot add egg at all.

    An interesting though, I'll give it a try

    Great :) Just to add, in Asian cuisine, corn starch is used a lot to make food "stick" together.
