  1. These sound delicious! I like that your burgers have broccoli in them too. I must admit I was surprised by the pumpkin but it must give a wonderful flavour.

  2. I made these last week! They were excellent. I love that this recipe incorporates some vegetables into the mixture. Thanks for the great recipes!

  3. These taste absolutely excellent! But for the life of me I can’t get them to fry up properly, as shown in the picture – they always wind up mushy. Still delicious, just not as pretty-looking. Any tips? (I made a batch and froze them, thaw them in the fridge, and fry up once thawed, if that info helps figure out the problem.)

    1. Chase- you could try bumping up your heat just a bit and/or switching to a different oil for frying. While Olive Oil is great for you and great for flavor it has a lower burn rate and makes it a bit harder to crisp things up sometimes. I like to use my cast iron skillet for crispy burgers too!
