Loved this recipe. Nice crisp on outside and tender inside. Made just a few changes, added some sautéed chopped onions and cumin, didn't have fresh oregano so subbed some dried, made bread crumbs out of whole wheat bread slices. I followed a reviewers suggestion to scoop patties onto a parchment tray, press down then freeze. This made handling the patties very easy. I made my patties more like 5" in size, versus the 3" in the directions. Cooking time was fairly accurate for me.
