Instead of using old-fashioned oats can you use wheat bread crumbs?
They wouldn't hold together very well, and so it was hard to fry them. I have had much better veggie burgers made with black beans instead of kidney.
Very good! Added 1 extra tbls of ketchup, 1/2 tsp of cumin and 1/2 tsp of chili powder. Yum!
I thought these were quite tasty, they were very wet, and I found it difficult to get 6 patties from this mix (I made 5) so they were bun sized, but the stuck together, Also I would recommend freezing on parchment paper then wrap in plastic for storage, I wrapped in plastic then in a Ziploc baggy. The hold together quite nicely. Also I baked it in my NuWave Oven.
I had a hard time making these stay together, but they still tasted good. It might help to add an egg or even some salsa to keep the burger from falling apart. I was surprised at how filling just one burger was. I'll plan on making them again.
