Mayonnaise? why? That is pure fat-not Thai style which is quite healthy IMHO

Is it common to eat burgers at breakfast in Thailand -

Left out the mayo/coconut/mint part and used some leftover peanut sauce to top the burger. Also used less panko, just a handful, and no bun since I'm on a low(er)-carb diet. Had it with a nice Asian salad. It was absolutely delicious and is definitely ending up in my favourites! Thanks for posting!
