Speedy Oatmeal Burgers

"I've served these meatless burgers many times to guest. My guest were always surprised to find out they're meatless. I serve them, like you'd serve meatloaf. They're great with mashed potatoes"

    This recipe is from the book "375 Meatless Recipes". I have made this before and it tastes okay but it's too squishy and doesn't have enough flavor for us. I have made a few changes including adding just 1/4 tsp sage & 3/4 tsp garlic powder. Also sautee the onions before adding to mixture & let mixture sit in fridge for an hr or so before "frying" in frying pan (w/coconut oil). Totally omitted gravy. Might add green peppers & mushrooms next time. Good starting recipe which is why I gave it 3 stars.

    I love oatmeal burgers, but I prefer mine crispy. Here's my take on this recipe. I cooked an onion until caramelized and added chopped white button mushrooms to the pan and cooked them, as well. I added the caramelized onions and mushrooms to the oatmeal mixture, which I made as written. I left the mixture to sit in the 'fridge until I returned home later in the evening. I got 4 medium patties out of the mixture and fried them in some cooking oil. I did not add the soup to the burgers, but instead added butter and a tablespoon or so of cornstarch to another pan. After I had mixed the cornstarch and butter I slowly added the soup and milk mixture. I had also put some caramelized onions and cooked mushrooms to the side for this gravy, so I added them at this time. I used my blender to make everything smooth in the gravy and served the oatmeal patties (now still crispy) with a side of mashed potatoes, covered in the mushroom and onion gravy. It's so yummy! I added some corn on the side for some veggies. I hope this helps some of you who might prefer a crispy patty, as opposed to a moister texture.

    We liked this...my husband couldn't believe it wasn't ground beef. I added some garlic powder and Italian seasoning to the oatmeal mixture, and I let it sit about 4 hours before trying to cook it...initially it was quite runny, but it thickened nicely. I added one envelope of beef bouillon powder to the soup mixture and it smelled great while cooking. I served the patties with scalloped potatoes and carrots.

    Ok.. I love trying different recipes.. I don't know how I found this one.. I was bored and thought, why not? LOL! My poor DH looked at me and said, "Eww no way am I going to eat that stuff. Oatmeal burgers?" We were laughing so hard. Well.. I didn't care for it at all. DH tried a bite and NO way was he touching the rest. Don't blame him. (Sorry.) The taste and texture was well, funky, icky, & just not good.. It smelled good while simmering, tho. But, my teen DD liked it! This won't get made again in my house. Ohh well. It's the most weird thing I ever made. By far. I'll stick to real burgers and my boca 'burgers.' I did use fresh herbs in this and grill seasoning in the mixture. I'm sure others may like it. Just wasn't for us. Thanks for sharing, tho! :)
