    This was a easy recipe that produced delicious burgers. I did not have any coriander, sherry or dry breadcrumbs. I added 1/2 slice of 50/50 bread (made into breadcrumbs). I did not have enough fresh mint as have been using my plant quite a bit recently, so added 1/2 teaspoon of dried. Next time I would add 1 teaspoon of the dried mint if fresh not available. - 03 Jun 2013
