Carrot Burgers

Recipe by  

"This wonderful meatless dish is quite tasty, and a great alternative to beef burgers when served on a bun with tomato and lettuce with mayo or stone ground mustard. Good served hot or cold. We have used these as main entrees or served a smaller version as side dishes. You may want to experiment with different spices that appeal to your family or even different vegetables such as zucchini. Cheese is another tasty add-in."

I was a little funny about trying this recipe but I am really glad I did!! My teen daughter is a vegetarian and the rest of us are not so I made these for her while we had chicken sandwiches and these were to die for!!! I added carrot and zucchini and followed the recipe exactly as stated and they held together perfectly and had an amazing flavor!! My whole non vegetarian family was jealous of my vegetarian teen after tasting these and they are requesting these for our next burger meal. Do try these, you won't be dissapointed.. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

There's something seriously off with the ratio of ingredients in the burgers. I made the first batch exactly as follows (but I halved the recipe). I used only carrots. 6 cups of bread crumbs is at least twice the amount needed. I had to add extra eggs/oil just to be able to form them into patties. They didn't even stick to the bran flakes and they ended up tasting like bread crumb cakes with a bit of carrots. The next batch I made with a mixture of carrots/zucchini. I doubled the amount of veggies and halved the amount of bread crumbs. This time they turned out great. I ate them on their own and dipped them in garlic mayo. 1 star for the recipe, 4 star for the taste with major modifications.

These were super! Very pleasant flavor, very flavorful! I did only use half of the breadcrumbs, as suggested by others. I also held the patty in one hand, and sprinkled the crushed cereal on, then turned it on to the other hand and sprinkled crushed cereal on the other side rather than dipping. When cooked, they were delicious, firm, flavorful patties! My husband was impressed by them too.

This was ridiculously delicious! I made a serving for 6 instead of 12. I used 2 cups of bread crumbs instead of 3 (I toasted whole-wheat bread, cut it up into pieces and used my blender to make it into crumbs) and about 1 and a half cups of raisin bran cereal (I picked out all the raisins). I will definitely be making this again! I'm real anxious to share it with others.

love it! love it! it tastes really good! i made a few changes as i don't have other ingredients available and i can't wait to make them. so, instead of mayonnaise i used cream cheese, i put in lots of minced garlic too. then i used 1 cup bread crumbs and 1 cup all-purpose flour as i used up the bread crumbs i have at home and looked for an alternative. for cereal flakes i used instant oatmeal. instead of baking, i fried it like the old school burgers. just used very little oil... made sure each side is cooked very well and of course the oatmeal is crunchy enough.i spread cream cheese on it and put in on a burger bun. ate it while it was still hot and yum yum yum!!! thank you so much!

I dunno. Just didn't "grab" any of us. Yeah, both kids (12 & 14) ate one (since the pork chops weren't done yet). They wouldn't have if I told them they were carrot burgers. I just said it was a side dish. Ate 'em with ketchup. 'Kinda tastes like ketchup with ketchup. For those who are going to try, I minced the onion & microwaved it with the carrots. It cooked nicely - no crunches. I didn't do the cereal coating & cooked 'em in a pan. 'Glad I tried it, but won't make it again. Next day: Had one cold. 'Reminded me of Thanksgiving bread dressing. Not a bad idea. Making dressing patties (with my recipe). Camping. Kids. Hmmm. I think the bread crumbs in it plus serving it on bread is just too much - yeah, bread. Maybe it's a better side dish with some type of gravy or sauce?

I used only half the amount of breadcrumbs called for (3 cups instead of 6) and they came out perfect!

At first when my dad asked how carrot burgers sounded for dinner I was a little hesitant. I figured we could try it, but had little faith it would be good enough to have again. I was wrong. This was a great vegetarian alternative. 6 cups of bread crumbs was way too much and my dad only used two. The burgers reminded me of a chicken patty, actually. Very filling. This one is a keeper; will definitely have again.
