German Burgers

My family loves German food and I am always looking for new burger toppings and ways to make them. How about combining two of our favorites? German food and Burgers? Yes!

Verdict: The flavor of these were amazing. The mixture of ground pork and beef with the caraway seeds added a great flavor and tons of juiciness to the burgers. The mixture of mayonnaise and ground mustard is a great addition especially for those that find stone ground mustard too strong. My kids loved it must stir a bit of each together to taste.

I served this with broccoli and a green side salad to complete the meal.
