Very good; I made meatballs and served them with pasta and tomato sauce. I didn't use soy milk, I used water with a veggie bouillon cube dissolved in it, and my one problem was that the mix was a little too moist (I had to bake it longer than 20 min.), so I'll reduce the water a bit next time. Also I don't have any liquid smoke so I left that out. And I added a few teaspoons of nutritional yeast. Thanks for the recipe!

Although I was looking for something that imitates meat a bit more closely, these were very tasty in their own right. We made it into meatballs and served them on a bed of rice with barbeque sauce over the top. Yum!
