MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 1, 2009

"The "patties" are a bit hard to work with - more like big cookies than a solid patty - but they cooked pretty well, and held together on the bun. The walnuts add a depth to the flavor. They do turn out a bit dry, but the suggested onion topping and mustard add soem moisture to the texture. Next time, I will try making these ahead in hopes that they will solidify in the fridge before baking."
