I make these often. I bake them in the oven instead of in a skillet. They get a little crispy and YUM! I also use a different slaw for a sweeter taste. I use a dressing from a TOH Light & Tasty Broccoli Cauliflower recipe. We are trying to cut down on fat and cholesterol and this is so great, you'd never know it was good for you.

This was better than I expected. My meat eating husband ate all of his and said it wasn't bad. If I make it again I might add some taco seasoning to the burger mixture to jazz it up a little bit.
