First attempt following directions (2 stars): Wow, I'm not sure what was so great about these. Ours were dry on the outside and mush in the middle, so maybe something was lost in the cooking technique, but we followed the directions so I don't know what went wrong! I was hesitant about using as much cumin as it called for but did it anyway. I LOVE cumin, but that's all these tasted like. Really? All those awesome ingredients and all I got to taste was cumin? I think spices and herbs should enhance what's there, not over power it. EDIT (Second attempt - 4 stars): I had some mix leftover because we only made 4 burgers so the next day I added a bunch more bread crumbs, made the patties smaller and thinner and pan fried them. I also used BBQ sauce instead of ketchup on the burger. This way of cooking it up wasn't as healthy but brought the flavor and texture up from a 2 star to a 4 star rating! If you have a small family, cut the recipe in half or be prepared to cook up a lot extra and freeze them for later.
