In a small mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Stir well to combine. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.
To make buns toasted, use whole wheat hamburger buns or rolls. Toasted buns make any sandwich or burger better. You have 5 ways to toast buns such as 1.-in broiler,2.-stovetop,3-grill,4-toaster oven, and 5-toaster.
