I've been making burgers this way for years and they've always gotten compliments. I use Italian bread crumbs however in place of the oats and leave out the hot sauce (our personal tastes don't run to hot foods). I also add a couple of cloves of minced garlic and a tbsp of green relish to spice things up. It holds together nicely on the grill even when I make nice huge flat patties for those large buns. There is NO other way to make a burger!;-) Read More

These were easy and tasted good. I cut the oats down to 1/2 cup. Read More

I wouldn't say it's the best burger ever but it's worth repeating! I'm not a spice lover so I was a little concerned with the hot pepper sauce but I followed the recipe exactly and found that it added just a little zing. Very nice! Here's a tip I just learned and it worked out great. Put an indent in the middle of your patties with your thumb before cooking - then they'll come out flat and not bulging in the middle! Read More

Great burgers! I added a pat of butter and inserted into the center of the patty before grilling make sure you close the meat around it. It adds so much flavor to burgers even in the oven grill. Read More

THE FIRST TIME I MADE THESE: I left out the onion soup mix and egg and they were AWESOME! I'm a huge fan of flat flat burgers. hate hate meatball burgers. well these were super flat and very tasty. my 3 kids ate them and never said a word about the hot sauce. it wasn't spicy like hot sauce it just made for a very tasty burger. also very moist. i will make these often. will probably add some extra garlic salt since we are very fond of garlic. we even garlic salt our french fries. yummy. thanks. THE SECOND TIME I MADE THESE: i used the onion soup mix and egg. they were still moist and flat but they tasted waaaay too much like meatloaf. no one liked them. Read More

These turned out pretty dry. Had to cop them up for the kids and serve it to them like meatloaf otherwise they wouldn't eat them. They were also surprisingly bland. If I make these again I will cut down on the oats and add pickle relish like another reviewer stated. Read More

This was really good. I was a little skeptical of the oatmeal at first but it tasted wonderful. We made them for a grill out and I got nothing but compliments! Read More

Excellent flavour!! I generally do not eat hamburgers but could not help myself in this case. I made a double recipe. The burgers were even better the next day reheated as the flavour became even better. A great make ahead meal. Read More

Since we still have plenty of snow on the ground we were unable to grill these. Instead I made it into a meatloaf (still following the recipe exactly) that I cooked for 1 hour at 350. It was great. My BF loved it and said he liked it better than my regular meatloaf. I will try this again as burgers too! Read More
