These are some of the best vegetarian 'meat' patties I have tried to date (well, patties that don't include gluten anyway). My husband did the skillet-heat-'em-up part of the cooking, and he did not have the patience to cook them through as one reviewer suggested *sigh*. I enjoyed these fine alongside a pasta and tomato dish, and enjoy them quite a bit in wraps (and that's a good thing, cuz these made a bunch!). Depending on how the rest of these freeze, and how much they change on the inside when left on a slower griddle for a longer time when I get around to cooking the rest of the batch, I might make some of these up again, keeping some in the freezer for myself. However, these are a bit of work, and I'm fine with plain beans. Plus, my family is still not sold on "meat substitutes." They can deal with meatless meals, and that's saying something, since my husband used to require gobs of ham in his own bowl of pinto beans. Now, as long as there are some nice sides the the beans, he thinks of brown bean supper as a very nice meal, guest-friendly even (think fried potatoes, cornbread, salsa verde, and something akin to fried okra, oh, slaw as well). Missing one or two of those sides, and brown beans, even without meat, are still a VERY user friendly meal to him today. However, 'meat substitute' is what he thinks when he hears 'bean cake', and maybe that's why the bean cakes never translate over for him.
BUT THESE ARE GOOD ALL THE SAME.
