Veggie Burgers

"We created these quick vegetable patties to use up some of our garden bounty," relates Mary James from Port Orchard, Washington. "To suit your family's tastes, include more of the vegetables you like and leave out the ones you don't for a specialty sandwich that's all your own."

    how big is a small zucchini, potato, carrot? TIP:add the eggs one at a time so that you don't need to add a finished product was way off the original only because a) i was expecting burgers not something like potato pancakes ,my own fault for not reading the recipe thoroughly and b) i had every intention of adding tvp to add protein. c)this recipe needs garlic, salt, lawrys etc.this is probably the best potato pancake recipe i have ever found and because of the added veggies it isnt so carb dense

    These turned out the consistency of pancakes for me. We threw them away.

    I also tried adding whole wheat flour and they turned out excellent! Great summer meal, we would make again!

    These burgers were terrible! Absolutely no flavor and difficult to fry. My dog wouldn't even eat it!

    I found them a little sticky . I added 1/8th cup of wheat flour and it worked out perfect.These are great on whole wheat tortillas or whole wheat buns as a sandwich.
