Wow! We all loved these! I struggle trying to find vegetarian recipes my son will eat. He doesn't like pasta and that makes it that much harder. Thank you for the new family favorite! I made parsnips chips as a side.

These turned out great! I subbed in a combination of 1/2 can of green chiles and a handful of cilantro for the scallions and loved it! A bit dry, so I spread leftover guac on top.

Would anyone recommend freezing these? We want to make them ahead of time so we can just grill them when we get to our destination.

This is one of our family favorites. I omit the egg for my vegan son-in-law and the rest of us as well. I do not even use egg replacer and they turn out ok for me.

Sounds real good for a meat less meal. But I have to count calories. Wish they had calories counts on the recipes. But will figure it out for myself and try.

Was considering these for my egg-allergic son. Until I saw the egg in the recipe. Any other recommendations (other than the flaxseed)?

@muffymc, you could use sunflower seeds or pine nuts.

To AndreaNewEngland, I understand your concern, but by supporting local producers of eggs that are from free range, free roaming chickens, that eat grass and bugs instead of unhealthy hybrid corn feed mixes, and live in clean coops, you put a dent in the business of these other cruel and indifferent producers of eggs. Help support these fine farmers and producers that care about their flocks and fields !

The one problem with home-made veggie burgers is the grilling. If you want to, you can use something ilke a fish holder which has smaller grates. Just spray them with oil. These would be great if you just leave out the egg! Remember, eggs are arguably the cruelest animal product you can buy when you consider the warehoused , stacked cages they keep those hens in. Just use a spoon of ground (powdered) flaxseed whisked with a few spoons of water. Easy and way healthier than eggs.

To cook these I used a focaccia press, which meant no need for oil, and served them as burgers in wholegrain rolls with guacomole, egg (also cooked in the focaccia press), lettuce and coriander (cilantro).

I agree about the nutritional analysis. I won't even buy a cookbook now unless it has the nutritional analysis for the recipe. Also, a portion size would be really helpful too. It's a pain to have to measure the entire contents of a recipe to figure out how much a serving is.

I think it would be wiser to substutue whole wheat or multigrain bread for the white bread.

I checked recipezaar.com and didn't find the exact recipe, but I did find one similar (and maybe healthier). And, it DOES have the nutritional info. If you want the exact info. for THIS recipe on MS, you could try entering it into the recipezaar site and I think it will calculate it for you. If you want to check out the other recipe for garbanzo burgers http://www.recipezaar.com/63024 Hope that helps :)

Like Radley, I yearn for nutritional analyses -- if McDonald's can do it, surely so can Martha Stewart!!!

I keep begging but what exactly would it take to get nutritional analyses on these recipes? Doesn't seem like much to ask!

The issue this appears in advises you to cook them in a skillet and after trying to grill a few myself, I have to agree. The burgers will often go right through the grate and even wrapping them in foil just makes a mess. However, once cooked these burgers taste so much like ground lamb I was amazed.
