These flavorful patties are baked instead of fried! I modified this recipe from The Great American Detox Diet by Alex Jamieson. These burgers freeze well if individually wrapped. Reheat them in the microwave or oven or on the grill.
The cooks at Moosewood serve these open-faced on toasted whole wheat bread with fresh lettuce, sliced tomato and Russian dressing. Try substituting the basil with marjoram, and combine herbs any way you like so long as the total does not exceed 1 tablespoon for dried or 3 tablespoons for fresh. The uncooked burger mix keeps for two days in the refrigerator. Formed into patties, these freeze well. Thaw at room temperature before baking. This was adapted from Vegetarian Times Magazine.
A recipe gotten from the Micheff Sisters “Father’s Day Special" on 3ABN.They say,"These patties are not only good in a sandwich, but they are great for an entrée too. I like to serve them with mashed potatoes and gravy. They are also nice to take on a picnic or put in your lunch, as they taste good hot or cold. They also freeze quite well."

The flax adds some bulk and binding power and also great nutritional value! Garnish with your favorite condiments, cheese, lettuce, etc. Adapted from Delicious Living magazine(Feb. 05) I haven't tried this yet, so placing it here for safekeeping.
