These were delicious! I did saute the chopped mushrooms first just a little bit( I thought it would give a bit more flavor). One question, where is the parsley? I added about 1/2 cup chopped parsley to the mix. My whole family and a guest loved these and asked for more.Thanks! [Editor's Note: the recipe was edited because of this review 10/15/02]
I made this for our family which includes a vegetarian daughter. This was a big hit for all! I omitted the jalapeno and added chopped garlic instead in case the heat was too for the rest of the family. I have already copied this into my tried and true recipes. Next time I thought I might add feta as well. Thanks for the posting
Definitely going in the "good enough for company" cookbook. I adored this recipe! Served it with garlic mayo and it was perfect. They look like burgers, so if you want to be a little fancier, try making little medallions or changing the shape. But no matter what you do, they're great and you're gonna luv 'em!
