The Method:

  1. To make aioli, whisk together Dijon mustard, egg yolk, Never Not Eating Chraime and lemon juice together in a bowl. Slowly drizzle in olive oil, starting with just a few drops, while whisking.

  4. To assemble, put burgers on the bottom side of a bun and top with aioli. Top with lettuce, tomatoes and red onion or desired toppings. Serve and enjoy!
