If you have a mini food processor, use it to prepare the mayonnaise mixture. You can use gluten-free English muffins if you don't have hamburger buns on hand.

Chef's Notes

Shape the patties up to 8 hours in advance, and cook just before serving. Use a grill pan or nonstick skillet to cook them since they may not hold up on a standard grill.
