This is a delicious recipe! Ended up making 6 of them, since that is what fit on my pan. But YUM! Going to try the purely vegetarian version next time. Served this with a giant salad and home-made oil-free dressing, and everyone was happy.

I can't say we absolutely loved these, since they were somewhat bland. I made them without the beef. Next time, I think I'll try making them without sautéing the onions and garlic (and maybe add extra), and only sautéing the mushrooms. They also took longer than 40 minutes to bake.

These were really good!  There isn't much meat in this but there is enough to give it a meat flavor.  I would eat these any time.  This is my new favorite burger on this eating plan.  My wife used Pinto Beans instead of Kidney Beans.  We much prefer Pintos.  She also used red quinoa.  I'm not sure if that mattered or not, but these burgers were really good.  Rating:  5 out of 5!
