This came out wonderful! The flavors were really good and baking it gave it a nice crunchy outside. I served it on a bun with mayo, bbq sauce, and avocado. Yum!

Love the texture and flavors of this healthy recipe. Burgers stay together nicely while cooking. Although the recipe was very simple, I made the patties ahead of time and cooked them later for a quick post workout meal. Also served these up at a cookout and they were a crowd pleaser.

I've made this recipe twice. It's yummy. The burgers have a nice chewy texture. I serve them with whole wheat buns. It's a filling sandwich but not too heavy. Also my boyfriend's 8 year old daughter liked them! They're kid approved! :)

This was simply amazing! I made mine in as a meatloaf and topped it with a squeeze of ketchup and spicy mustard. Absolutely dee-lish accompanied by cauliflower mashed potatoes!
