    Delicious and healthy, they only thing I changed was instead of using Saltine crackers, I ground up some Herb-flavored crackers. My husband and I made them for a church dinner and they were a hit. I give it 5 stars blessings, Linda in Mckinney,TX.

    Great when you dont have a lot in the fridge! I made it with garlic and onions to give it extra flavour (though it was still slightly bland) then had it with salad - very nice, quick and easy!

    I'm a student, a rower and a vegetarian - i.e. I need lots of protein and have no scales and no money. This was a cheap protein packed recipe that was easy to make, albeit it not very flavoursome. I tried it with onion and cumin but possibly underestimated the amount of cumin needed so the next time I just ate with HP sauce hehe!

    The only thing I changed about this was to add cumin & garlic because there was no flavor as it was. I don't think it was anything like meatloaf, as another person commented, but like a black bean burger. I don't know if I would make it again. It was easy & quick to make though.

    To add a little more flavor, saute half an onion and add salt and pepper to mix. Otherwise a simple and filling recipe. Great for a snack or a grab and go breakfast.
