MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 29, 2013

"Instead of using old-fashioned oats can you use wheat bread crumbs?"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 7, 2012

"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."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 2, 2012

"Very good! Added 1 extra tbls of ketchup, 1/2 tsp of cumin and 1/2 tsp of chili powder. Yum!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 30, 2012

"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."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 23, 2012

"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."
