  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs.
  2. Stir in wheat germ, cheese, mushrooms, onion, thyme, rosemary and zucchini. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Shape into 4 patties, 3/4-inch thick.
  4. In a nonstick saute pan, heat the oil, place in patties, and cook until golden, about 4 minutes.
