    These were surprisingly good. I thought they were going to be a bit dry but they were good. The relish was fantastic and really made the burger. Served the meal with fresh melon. Very good summer dinner.

    This recipe really disappointed me - for some reason, I didn't like the combination of flavors together. It sounded like it'd be good, and DH liked it, but it just got an "eh" from me. The texture of the burgers was good, so maybe with another combination of ingredients, it'd be OK.

    I make these and freeze them. We no longer buy the premade burgers. Just take one of these out and pop on the grill. They are best cooked on the grill. Top with a little blue cheese, yum!

    I was pretty nervous about this recipe, I was having my nephew over for dinner, and he's pretty picky. My kids love beans, so they gobbled them right up, my nephew said it was pretty good, which I was surprised by, and considered them a major success. I think the relish makes the burger

    I loved the combination of flavors in the burger and the relish...I was worried it would be bland, but not at all! A quick and easy, veggie option when you're craving a burger.

    These were really easy to make and tasted delicious. My husband who was really uneasy when I told him I was making a meat free burger couldn't stop commenting on how great these were. These will be in a regular rotation from now on.

    These are REALLY good. Pretty quick to prep and clean up. When grilling, make sure they don't burn. Either give them a hot sear for less than a minute per side, or cook at a lower temp, or just put the coals in the middle of the grill and keep the burgers on the edge of the rack.

    Really good! I am not one to leave out the meat, usually. I eat chicken and fish but no red meat or pork. I made this recipe as a change of pace and because this is a menu item that my girlfriend would typically order. She was the one that found this recipe and I wanted to put my skills to the test, against what she's already tasted. I added 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper to this batch. I am going to try adding minced mushrooms and play around with the spice ratio some more on the next batch.Oh, I left out the relish and served it on flatbread, with sliced avocado, feta, baby spinach and diced red onion. Really liked it!

    I love this recipe.I have always been a big fan on frozen all ready prepared from the store ones.NO MORE!I think I will try different things to put in it,such as mushrooms and garlic powder also.The dressing was great,which gave the burger big flavor.Going to try freezing them too.
