Mashed potatoes and green peas go well with this lovely dish, or serve with lemon rice. I got this out of a Woman's Day magazine.

I made as stated except I didn't add the 2nd 1/3 cup of parsley. Just super easy to put together and a nice NEW alternative to burger or meat balls, sort of in between. I served with Lemon Basmati rice and a Greek Salad. Thanks for sharing.

This was amazingly good. The simplicity of this recipe led to an unexpected taste sensation! I think I will squeeze lemon on all my burgers! I was unsure where to add the parsley so I just topped the burgers with it. I used a combination of fresh parmesan and asiago. Thank you so much Sharon!

I had to restrain myself from adding breadcrumbs and an egg to this recipe because that is the way I make my meatballs and sometimes meatloaf as well. But this recipe did not need those additions - it was great as is! Adding the lemon and parsley at the end really made for a wonderful and different flavor. I think the parsley listed twice is probably an error, right? Thanks so much for posting this Sharon.
