This is a great way to serve a burger. You will not miss the red meat. They are good enough to convert many die hard red-meat eaters!

I made these for dinner tonight and served them with green beans and fresh fruit as my sides. The spice mix makes quite a lot. I suggest cutting the amounts in half, as we have a lot left over. While the flavor was okay, these burgers are quite time consuming to make and I had trouble getting them to stay together while cooking them. Everyone in my family rated them between 3 and 4 stars.
