    I cooked these in patty pans as they were for a party. Subbed breadcrumbs for oats, mixed herbs for basil and left out egg as I needed a vegan version, so I probably shouldn't leave a review rating but I would like to thank you for the base recipe. It's always good to find interesting flavour combos to go with cheap ingredients like pumpkin. Thanks again.

    I didn’t have any lemon so used lime and I added a bit more oats after reading it was a wet mix.

    i used egg rings to help them keep a round shape which worked perfectly!

    The kids wolfed then down with salad between toast for some Sunday lunch burgers.

    Super stoked to have found this recipe! Thank you!

  • Very delicious, but don't

    Very delicious, but don't expect to be able to shape these into patties. I added a whole heap of breadcrumbs to try, and still had to spoon sloppy mixture onto the bbq. Didn't matter, they stil worked (had to cook a long time before flipping) and were tasty. I'd make them again!
