When it comes to egg in hamburger patties or meatloaf, the egg serves as a binder to hold the meat and other ingredients together.

Why do homemade burgers fall apart?
Some people who make hamburgers have a tendency to add too much in their patties. They add soy, marinates, liquid seasoning, and even salt long before making the patty. All the extra ingredients either add too much moisture to the patty, which will make it fall apart. Some also use binders like breadcrumbs or eggs.

If you want a juicy hamburger, it helps to restore some of that lost moisture. The easiest way is to add water or some other liquid to the burger mixture. We’ve found that 2 to 3 tablespoons of ice-cold water mixed into a pound of ground beef greatly increases the juiciness of grilled burgers.
How do you bind hamburger patties without eggs?
My secret to binding burgers without egg and other fillers is chia seeds. I’ve used chia seeds a lot in sweet style recipes but this was the first addition to a savoury style meal and I can tell you they make the best burger, there is no turning back once you try them I reckon. Chia seeds work as a great egg replacer.
Whether to add breadcrumbs or not is entirely a textural decision if you’re making burgers yourself. It’s a good way to “stretch” the meat so you get more patties per kilo of actual meat, but that’s a commercial reason to add breadcrumbs, not a culinary one.
