      These are very similar to the way I make mine (really MIL recipe)...there were a few new ingredients and a few missing...DH really enjoyed them although he noticed right away they were different...very easy to prepare...I served them with potato pancakes and green beans with bacon. Made a yummy dinner...Thanks for posting...Made for Fall PAC 2011

      Yum and ~Tasty Dish~ approved! ("This is tasty meat, Mommy!") I used half lamb/half beef, plain yellow mustard (out of brown which I was planning to use). I skipped the stock cube and used fresh parsley from our CSA box. Served with root vegetable mash: celeriac, sweet potatoes, Yukons; and a simple spinach salad for our dinner on Wednesday. Patties were cooked in rice bran oil which has a higher smoke point than olive oil. Thanks for posting! Will make again!
