    Delicious Bits's Note:

    I've never cooked with lentils before. I started out making a curried lentil salad base, refrigerated what I'd done, then decided to changed the recipe into burgers. These have a lot of flavour and a nice texture. They're quite versatile too. I was low on breadcrumbs and had no eggs. I substituted the egg with 1 tablespoon each of powdered milk, plain flour and water. I substituted the breadcrumbs with 100g packet of rice crackers processed (approx 1 cup) and processed 2 pieces of wholegrain toast. NB: I've changed the breadcrumbs measurement from 2c down to 1c based on the first reviewers comments and I've since tested the recipe again. Thanks!

      A nice burger patty - I liked the flavours but felt it could do with a bit more kick perhaps chilli powder. Also only I only needed 1 cup of breadcrumbs & felt that would be enough without making the patties too dry. Final recipe made for PAC 2009
