    WOW !! Added some fresh basil to the meat and chopped onion...Quite possibly the BEST tasting burger I've ever had. I'm totally bamboozled on how these burgers stayed together without the eggs and filler?? I'm gobsmacked..Damn these came off GOOD !!!

    I really enjoyed this burger. I have liked everything I made so far. The pepperoni pizza is one of my favorites

    Yes, that should work but we have not tested for temperature or time.

    What is wasabi paste, not heard of it in England. Many thanks

    Dena, I always cook these on the stove, grilling with bacon wrap just creates way too much flare up. I fry them over medium to medium high heat until brown and the lower the heat to medium low until cooked to desired internal temperature. It takes about 30 minutes total for medium. Make sure to use a heavy bottom skillet.

    Uncooked, so it is flexible enough to bend around the burger.

    You may leave off the bacon.

    Possibly I’m being a tad dim. Nearly all the dinner recipes state “Cook enough so there are leftovers for lunch tomorrow (plan on 2 servings per person)”. It’s only me following the diet; so I choose the ingredients for 1 serving for each meal. For arguments sake, if I produce two small/medium burgers for one person should I only eat one and keep the other for my lunch the following day or should I choose and make to the ingredients for 2 people and eat half and serve the other half the fallowing day?! Hope this makes sense?!!

    If you need two meals, set the number of servings to 2. That will give you 1 dinner + 1 lunch.

    Perfect thank you.

    These were amazing, I doubled the recipe and have some uncooked in the fridge for lunch tomorrow. So yum and easy
