'These carrot patties were a big hit with my children when they were growing up,' reports Phyllis Moody of King William, Virginia. Cornflakes provide the taste that kids find so appealing, while the low price--just 18¢ a burger--makes them attractive to parents.

Oh my goodness...these make a GREAT vegy burger! I made a few changes in the recipe because I didn't have cornflakes in my pantry. I used Special K w/protein instead. Also, I used Egg Beaters instead of eggs and omitted the salt and sugar (Special K is slightly sweetened). I cooked the patties in a nonstick skillet with canola cooking spray instead of using oil. The patties cooked up wonderfully and were a welcome treat at our dinner table. Read More

The first time I made these I have some problems holding them together. But the second time they came out great (with some tweaking)! I added about a cup and a half of mashed sweet potato to the mixture as well as a bunch of fresh chopped cilantro. The sweet potato really held everything together and tastes great. Also, this way you can cut way down on the bread crumbs/corn flakes. Read More

I gotta say, we are meat eaters (my hubby & I), and have trouble considering things a meal unless there is SOME kind of meat, but I'm trying to healthy us up a bit. So I thought after all the great reviews I'd give this a try...with a few personal substitutions....SO, I used Corn Chex instead of Corn Flakes, (I had them left over from 4th of July party mix). And We prefer savory over sweet in most dishes, so instead of the sugar, I used an equal amount of marjoram. These were so great, we will defiantly add them to regular dishes!!!! My Hubby said they remind him of crab cakes. I'm so glad I found this recipe, and hope ya don't mind if I pass it along! Read More

This was excellent! I juice a lot of carrots and was looking for a way to use the pulp. It worked out great. My meat-eating husband said that it was one of the tastiest burgers that he ever ate. Also, I only had one cup of cornflakes, so substituted a cup of bran flakes, which worked well. I will definitely make this again. Read More

I thought that these were great! I used only the egg whites, and added and extra, and also added red and green pepper. I made the patties small, and ate them plain. Even my dad who usually thinks veggies are gross enjoyed these. Read More

As a soy-sensitive asthmatic who is trying to go meatless at least once a week, this recipe is almost too good to be true. I added one small baked sweet potato to extend the recipe without adding more cereal, used large eggs and a dash or two of worcestershire sauce. It turned out great! I'm going to try it as a 'meatloaf' next. Read More

OMG! OMG! OMG! Made these verbatum. If I should make any changes it would not be that there is anything wrong with this recipe. Read More

I liked them; my husband did not. They become more 'burger-like' as leftovers because they have the chance to firm up in the refrigerator. Because of this, I recommend making them ahead of time and then reheating gently. Read More

Yum! I made the "kid-friendly" modifications for my hubby: used onion powder and celery seed instead of fresh onions and celery. I also chopped the carrots into tiny pieces instead of dicing. I topped it with muenster cheese and ketchup, and served it on a whole wheat bun. I wasn't too hungry so I just prepared a burger for him. But while I was waiting for him to come down for dinner, I ended up eating half of his burger because it was so good. My meat loving husband finished the other half and I had to make another whole one for him. This was the first veggie burger my picky husband has ever ate, and he said he would eat it again.
