I agree with Steve Grinavic: EXCEPTIONAL!! I made these tonight and even my picky BF loved them. I toasted some whole-wheat pitas and spread FF mayo and some avocado on them. I took Steve's healthy advice and usd ground whole oats (1 cup) instead of the bread crumbs. I also added two extra cloves of garlic, and I used dried basil since I didn't have any fresh around. They were really, really awesome. Thanks so much for posting this, I will make them all the time!!!!
Exeptional. I used 2x fresh basil and oregano and doubled the garlic. I did substitute ground oats for the bread crumbs to make it even more healthy! Coarsly cut the onion then threw everything in a deep sided bowl and used an immersion blender to finish chopping/mixing. I think it took longer to open the cans than anything else. Thanks Mini!
I hate to say this, b/c of all the great reviews, but my husband and I didn't care too much for these burgers. I thought they tasted alright. I think that for me though they needed more of a spicy flavor. I may use this basic recipe agian but instead make the burgers spicy. My husband just plain out didn't like the burgers. But then again, he is quite the meat eater! I also didn't care for the cinnamin flavor. It didn't go well w/ the ketchup and mustard that I put on my burger. Maybe it's just my tastes, so please don't take this to offense or let my review hinder you from making this!
