These are so good that I've been craving them ever since I first made them. Our only issue with these was that "burger" is kind of a stretch... we tried to eat these on buns with all the burger fixins and they just squished out the side of the bun every bite we took. The taste was incredible though! It was a good knife and fork "burger," but next time I'll probably go bun-less! :) I might try half beans half lentils to see if that firms them up a little more. Update: Cooked down some dried lima beans and also cooked some lentils. So I made half and half burgers. YUM! I also froze the leftover burgers and today we got them out of the freezer and put them right in the hot oil. I actually burned them a little bit because I was afraid the middle wouldn't defrost, but they came out with a nice crispy cornmeal crust and hot insides. Super quick and easy if you make them ahead and go freezer-to-frying-pan! Update #2: I've played around with these so much and I've decided they're pretty much fool-proof. My favorite add-in is cooked brown rice. They give these some texture and stick-to-your-ribs-ness that is really good. I've never omitted the cheese, but I can't really taste it, so I think you could save yourself some calories and fat by taking it out. I simply love these burgers. It's a shame my husband doesn't feel the same way.
