Curry Burgers with Cilantro Lime Mayo

Curry Burgers with Cilantro Lime Mayo | AmandaNaturally.com Burgers are a staple in our house! Why? Because they’re quick to make, delicious and inexpensive. The last part is key, because when buying properly raised meat, cost does become a factor. And after beef shanks and organ meats, ground beef is the cheapest cut you can get! So between tacos, burgers, pasta sauce and chili (in the fall/winter), we eat a lot of it!

And while I could eat the same ol’ burger day in, day out (plain topped with salsa, sauerkraut, red onion and avocado – for anyone who’s interested!), I do enjoy changing it up from time to time. Case in point, this recipe for Curry Burgers with Cilantro Lime Mayo! By changing the spices and toppings just a bit, you have a whole new take on a typical meal!

We usually eat our burgers on top of a great big salad, but these guys would be perfect as sliders, on plantain biscuits buns or with a side of sweet potato fries

 

Try not to use the store-bought mayo if you can. In the USA you can buy ones made with clean oils, but so far in Canada we still only have canola oil-based mayos. Yes, even the ones that say “olive oil mayo” use predominantly canola oil. Homemade mayo is super easy to make though – check out my directions here.
