    Delicious! My husband thought so too! I used green onion instead of scallions. I used about 1/2 cup of prepared instant mashed potatoes in place of the red potato. I also made an aioli sauce with about 3 parts mayo, 1 part mustard and fresh minced garlic to taste. This will be a favorite!  -  13 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very easy to make and so good! I found that I didn't need all the cornflake crumbs it called for. I made the burger mixture the day before and rolled them the following day. I used an ice cream scooper to get them consistent - the last patty may come out a bit small (or not at all). I didn't use olive oil but did spray my pan with Pam Olive Oil cooking spray. I served them on wheat buns with romaine lettuce and mayo that I doctored up with lemon juice and basil. A definite make again!  -  04 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is wonderful! Used italian bread crumbs in place of cornflakes. Both my 18 month old and 28 year old ate 'em up.  -  04 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
