  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease an oven-proof wire rack.

  • Place wire rack with patties onto a baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until burgers are firm, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Burgers can also be cooked in a greased skillet, 6 to 7 minutes per side.

We really like these burgers. The Panko breadcrumbs and eggs really help hold them together. I made a double batch and plan to freeze some of the mix for another time and am actually looking forward to partially baking them and finishing on a grill. So often we go to b-b-q events and have really tired of settling with salad and frozen veggie burgers. I'll add more jalapeno next time and may add some cumin too. Delicious hot OR cold for sandwiches too! Thanks! Read More

This is by far one of the worst veggie/lentil burger recipes. I even boiled the lentils in vegetable broth and used the whole jalapeno but it had very little flavor. Takes a lot of time to finely dice the other veggies and the end result is a dry mushy patty. I would not make this again. Read More

They were great I used red lentils because the recipe didn't specify. I made rice to go with it but I think it needed a vegetable more so next time i will do that. The recipe says feeds 6 but it was only enough for 3 servings. Read More
