I made this a few days ago, with only two changes to the original recipe - granulated garlic in place of the garlic salt, and oatmeal instead of bread crumbs. I did end up needing quite a bit more oatmeal to get it to stick together. I first tried frying them with Pam, but they stuck horribly. The taste was pretty good and the consistency was fine once I'd cooked them long enough. It was my first veggie burger, and both my kids and I liked them well enough to eat them throughout the week. I saved half the mixture and am baking them now. I've baked them on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet for about 15 minutes at roughly 375* so far (my oven isn't very accurate, so you may need to experiment with this). When I flipped them just now, they stayed together perfectly and looked much better than the pan-fried attempt. They also looked much less 'mushy,' so this cooking method improves the consistency as well. I also have to agree with the reviewers who said this recipe should make far more than 6 patties. I'm using a 1/2 cup measuring cup and a quarter of the recipe came out to 3 1/2 burgers.
