What was I thinking, promising I would blog a veggie burger recipe on the day Britney files for divorce, um, I mean, Election Day?
Anywho, I mashed those beans, sauted those veggies, lumped it all together into patties and cooked them in an electric skillet.
DEElicious! The best veggie burger I've EVER had, I swear. Now, I've tried the oatmeal-based patties, and I never got them quite right. I kept thinking: "I know they're not supposed to taste like beef, but these don't taste like anything!"
I got the recipe from my BFF of 15 years, and she has never steered me wrong. She got the recipe from (hold your pants on 'cause they're about to fall off) Weight Watchers. No lie.
So far, they've kept well in the fridge, stayed in pattie shape without falling apart and they taste good cold or hot. Amazing but true! I throw 'em on a bun with tomato. And I made a bigger batch, too, because four patties won't do it for our family. A little more time-consuming, but SO worth it.
Recipe follows in the comment section. Lemme know how you like them, and if you have any other veggie recipes that are to die for (I promise to share them with Lauren)!
