I've served these meatless burgers many times to guest. My guest were always surprised to find out they're meatless. I serve them, like you'd serve meatloaf. They're great with mashed potatoes

This recipe is from the book "375 Meatless Recipes". I have made this before and it tastes okay but it's too squishy and doesn't have enough flavor for us. I have made a few changes including adding just 1/4 tsp sage & 3/4 tsp garlic powder. Also sautee the onions before adding to mixture & let mixture sit in fridge for an hr or so before "frying" in frying pan (w/coconut oil). Totally omitted gravy. Might add green peppers & mushrooms next time. Good starting recipe which is why I gave it 3 stars.

I love oatmeal burgers, but I prefer mine crispy. Here's my take on this recipe. I cooked an onion until caramelized and added chopped white button mushrooms to the pan and cooked them, as well. I added the caramelized onions and mushrooms to the oatmeal mixture, which I made as written. I left the mixture to sit in the 'fridge until I returned home later in the evening. I got 4 medium patties out of the mixture and fried them in some cooking oil. I did not add the soup to the burgers, but instead added butter and a tablespoon or so of cornstarch to another pan. After I had mixed the cornstarch and butter I slowly added the soup and milk mixture. I had also put some caramelized onions and cooked mushrooms to the side for this gravy, so I added them at this time. I used my blender to make everything smooth in the gravy and served the oatmeal patties (now still crispy) with a side of mashed potatoes, covered in the mushroom and onion gravy. It's so yummy! I added some corn on the side for some veggies. I hope this helps some of you who might prefer a crispy patty, as opposed to a moister texture.
