Excellent flavor! My husband made a triple batch of these a few weeks ago and froze the patties. We thawed half the batch in the fridge overnight [the smell of garlic was amazing every time we opened the fridge door!] and barbequed them for supper last night. They were moist and delicious. We will definitely be making these again. Note to the chef...you should add these to the OAMC category, as they freeze well.
