    Dr. Jenny's Note:

    This recipe came from Better Homes and Gardens and DH and I liked it very much. The burgers had great flavor and consistency. DH said so far, this has been the best meatless burger recipe we have made to date. Instead of using the country Italian bread, we just used hamburger buns. We chopped the parsley. We did not top with the Easy Tomato Sauce.

      These were good. They were slightly dry, next time I will use less bread crumbs and more carrots. I made the tomato sauce that came with this recipe and that was delicious. The only big change I made was to add a slice of mozzarella after flipping the burgers over during the last 4 minutes of cooking. Thanks for posting this great healthy burger recipe Dr. Jenny. Made for Photo Tag Spring 2013. P.S. Sorry that the photo was bad, I couldn't get a good picture no matter what setting I had this on. : (

      Yum! Great concept. I did end up using jarred tomato sauce and added a bit of cheese on top (love cheese). I found this well balanced, although I suggest making thin patties as they are a bit mushy when really thick.
