  1. Just found your blog and I must say I’m now obsessed 🙂 My husband is buying me a deep freezer this week and you are partially to blame! I did have a quick question though. Is there another binding ingredient that can be used for these burgers instead of the egg? My son has a milk and egg allergy, although he tends to be ok with the eggs as long as the protein has broken down like in cakes or muffins. Thanks for your help!

  2. I made this tonight for supper and of course my food processor is being temperamental and wouldn’t work…so I mashed as good as I could…I was a little worried about the juices coming out of the veggies but when it was all mixed together the patties held together.
    I baked them on a metal cookie sheet sprayed with PAM and they came up with no trouble, although they were a little crumbly (probably due to the larger bits I ended up with).Overall the flavor was a bit sweet but very good and we all liked them! I made a double batch so I have some in a freezer bag for an upcoming meal!
