My son encouraged me to come up with a good veggie burger for him, and he gave this recipe a triple A+! Not only are they moist and flavorful, but they’re very easy to freeze. Now, like my son, I prefer them over meat burgers. —Clara Honeyager North Prairie, Wisconsin

"MMMM, my mom and I love these!! My first time I had trouble getting them to stay in patties, but I think with practice it will get better and I'm sure I will be getting lots of practice! I will definitely be making these again...and again, and again and again.....!"
