    buttercup0009's Note:

    I got this recipe out of "The WIC Bean Book." I altered it a little to fit my tastes, adding chili powder and the veggie cheese. The chili powder is appx. is use your best jugdement. These burgers turned out really good; nice and tender, not hard like many of the frozen patties you can buy. Even my husband "the meat eater" liked these!

      Super good! I did add some extra seasoning, poultry seasoning and hot sauce. They cooked up really nice and looked a lot like a regular burger. I'm freezing the extra patties to have on hand for a quick, healthy meal. Thanks for posting the recipe.

      Very good! Much better than the old lentil burger recipe I used to use. Our kids liked this one MUCH better. Thank you for sharing it.

      Everybody liked them (which says a lot!) even the meat eating husband! I only had about 1 Cup of bread crumbs so that is what I used and it still came together really well, I will probably only use that much from now on. I formed patties with my hands (a sticky venture but definitely no worse than shaping hamburger!) And I got probably 12 patties (not huge but decent sized) Even my husbands friends ate them (out of curiosity) and liked them. Definitely a keeper. thanks for sharing.
