Best burgers I have ever made! I substituted the oats with Italian bread crumbs and cut the ketchup in 1/2 and added Worcestershire sauce. Fantastic! Read More

This recipe turned out just all right for me. I followed the directions exactly but I found the texture to be a little too meatloaf-y as another reviewer mentioned. I think that was probably the oats. The flavor was great....I just didn't care much for the meatloaf-like texture. I will make this again but I think next time I will leave out the oats to see if that makes a more firm burger-like texture. Read More

This is almost an exact duplicate of a recipe I have been making for years (I add Worcestershire and omit the onion flakes). For those of you who had trouble keeping the burgers together try whirring the oatmeal in the food processor/mini-chopper for a few seconds to make them more like flour. The benefit of oatmeal is that it assumes the taste of the meat rather than adding its own flavor. Read More

I thought these were great. I used finely chopped onion rather than dried. They were moist and I didn't have any trouble with them falling apart. The onion soup mix gives a little kick and they taste great. Read More

I needed a quick and easy ground beef recipe tonight so I mixed up these burgers but decided at the last minute to bake the mixture in the oven as a meat loaf. I added about 6 drops of liquid smoke to the meat mixture and it was fabulous! It took 40 minutes to bake at 400 degrees. I will definitely make this again. Read More

This is trully the best barbequed burger I have ever tried. My family and friends love it. The only thing I did differently was substitute the cooking oats for Italian bread crums. It was jucy and it did not break appart while grilling it. I really recomend it to everyone. Read More

I was so pleasantly surprised by this recipe! This was delicious and the burgers held together very well. The flavors and spices were well balanced. I used 93% lean ground beef. My husband and son both liked these as well. Thanks so much I highly recommend this recipe and I don't care for many burger "recipes" like this. Thanks again! Yum! Read More

Very VERY good! I loved how they stayed together on my grill. The kids loved them. The only thing I did differently was used Italian style bread crumbs instead of the oats (because I didn't have any oats!). Will DEFINATELY fix again!! Read More
