Reviews for Mushroom Burgers
"These were lovely and actually quite "Meaty". I used the same ingredients but changed the method. I didn't want the burgers to be soggy inside once cooked due to the mushrooms releasing water so I finely chopped the mushrooms ( I used large flat mushrooms) and onion and threw them in a frying pan on a high heat till all the released water had evaporated, then allowed them to cool and added the rest of the ingredients. The mixture was quite wet so once patty shaped, I coated the burgers in leftover breadcrumbs and placed the in the fridge for 2 hours in firm up. Then to keep the calories down, I placed them on greaseproof paper and baked them for about 20 mins on quite a high heat, turning once halfway through. They were firm and moist on the inside and crispy on the outside. Will definitely do again but will double the recipe and see how well they freeze for future quick meals. Far better than any "veggie" burger I've tasted."
"This sounds like a great substitution for ground meat !"
"Very good and tasty. I used baby bellas, gives a nice rich earthy flavor, left out the cheese, used homemade soft bread crumbs and added another 1/4 c. of white whole wheat flour because it was too wet and refrigerated for a couple hours. I placed a 1/4 c. mound (I got 5) on a foiled cookie sheet with cooking spray and baked at 375, flipped once until done. I served on a round sandwich flat bread."
"Just made these for lunch today. Cooked them for about 5 minutes each side just to be sure they were cooked through. Nicely browned and tasty! The patty held up well to eat on a bun with "standard" burger extras. Very nice flavor.Definitely on our list of regulars!"
"yummy even my meat eating husband enjoys them"
