    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!  -  16 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  03 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  12 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
