Recipe by winkki
READY IN: 1hr 15mins




  • Combine all ingredients in heavy pan on med heat.
  • Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low.
  • Simmer uncovered 50 min, or until all liquid is gone and mixture is very sticky.
  • (Don't cook it too fast or it won't be sticky enough to hold together-- if liquid is gone and mixture doesn't seem to stick, add a little more water and continue simmering.) Stir periodically throughout and then frequently near end of cooking time to prevent scorching.
  • Remove from heat, place in covered container, and chill thoroughly, preferably overnight.
  • To cook burgers: Preheat skillet on medium, spray lightly with non-stick spray if desired.
  • Wet hands lightly and shape patties from approx 1/2 cup chilled mixture each.
  • Cook until browned on both sides-- turn carefully!
