Pretty good and easy. I sauteed up the mushrooms and onions until most of the liquid went away, like another reviewer suggested and didn't have any problems. I fried one patty up right away and baked the rest on a greased baking sheet at 350 for about 15 min, flipping halfway. I froze the baked ones and fried them until brown for a quick dinner. That also worked out well. My only complaint is that the patties are a little to mushy, the texture just didn't taste quite right to me. I found that putting sunflower seeds on topped helped. Next time, I think I'll add 1/4 cup to the patty mixture before I bake.

I just made these for my lunch and I love it. I thought the mushroom taste would be over powering, but it's not. I will make these again.

These tasted great!! Only change was to saut? mushrooms and onions to extract some of the liquid...I also added a clove of minced garlic. They held together perfectly...will definitely make again!

Excellent, healthy, and easy! Kids loved it! Going into my recipe rotation. I did everything according to the recipe. I used Daiya cheddar shreds for the cheese, and omitted the thyme. Yummy!!

I really enjoyed these burgers. My favorite way to have them is for lunch without the bun and add a dollop of sour cream.

Meh. They tasted good, but I would have skipped the thyme - no need for it. Plenty of black pepper will do. Thyme adds an unnecessary flavor that interferes with toppings, and I envisioned a thick "meaty" burger with lettuce, pickles, cheese, etc. - just leave it out if you want a basic burger you can dress up however you like. I doubled the recipe, but used three eggs instead of four - I think four would have been too eggy. Also, the raw mushrooms created a watery mess that didn't resolve even after being chilled, resulting in thin "burgers" that were more like mushroom cakes. Next time I may try cooking the water out of the mushrooms first, or pressing them. Or maybe I'll get nuts and use dried mushrooms! Who knows.

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.
