Neat recipe. These turned out very nicely, and held their shape, too. I always enjoy new recipes for veggie burgers. Thanks for posting- Roxygirl
FANtAStic!! SO good! I ate it as a patty on it's own with a side of roast potatoes and salad.... i have to say it again, SO GOOD! I did alter it just a bit, as in double the mushrooms and onions, doubled the cheese by adding 1/2 cup cheddar (used hot pepper monty jack too for the extra kick!) :) :) :)
I really enjoyed this recipe!!! I halved it and used a little more than half the zucchini. I also used mozzarella cheese. Love it and served with Flo's Hot Dog Relish and jarred roasted red peppers. Thanks for a winner!
