Veggie Burgers with Vegetarian Burger

A Veggie Burger with Vegetarian Burger in a bun with lettuce, tomato and condiments, served with potato chips.

These Veggie Burgers are not only tasty but quite economical to make as well.  I like to make these with Yves Ground Round but any vegetarian burger, frozen or canned, will do as well.  Oatmeal and bread crumbs stretch the more expensive burger so you can feed your family for just a few dollars.

Sometimes I have half a package of burger left over from making a meal. I often half recipes because Don and I don't need full size recipes for just the two of us.  This Veggie Burger recipe uses only half a package or about 1 cup burger so that suits our needs just perfectly.  The recipe makes 6-8 burgers (depending on the size you make them) which is good amount for a small family.  I freeze any leftovers for meal of hamburgers on another day. If you do need a load of burgers just double all the ingredients and you'll have 12-14 burgers to serve to your hungry family and guests.


Printable recipe at bottom of post.

Veggie Burgers with Vegetarian Burger

½ package Yves Ground Round or about 1 cup frozen or canned vegetarian burger
1 slice whole wheat bread, made into crumbs or about ⅓ cup bread crumbs
1 cup oatmeal
2 eggs
1 small onion, finely diced
1 teaspoon hamburger or steak spice/seasoning
½ teaspoon savory
2 tablespoons oil
¼ cup hot tap water or warm milk 
Oil for frying

Mix everything together except the frying oil.  Let sit about 5 minutes to let the oatmeal soak up some of the liquid. Use ice cream scoop or large spoonfuls to make hamburger patties. Drop on hot oiled frying pan.  Fry slowly on low heat until nicely browned on each side.  Serve on buns with your favourite toppings.

Makes 6-8 burger patties.



Place all ingredients in a bowl.

Water or milk can be used.  
Today I used water but some days I use milk.

Mix all the ingredients together and let sit about 5 minutes to allow the oatmeal to absorb some of the liquid.


Use an ice cream scoop or a ¼-cup measure to make the patties all the same size.  You should get about 6-8 patties depending on the size you make them.


Today I made 7 burger patties from my recipe.

I have been thinking about making burgers using either the new frozen crumbles or the dehydrated type, so thanks a lot for this recipe. I try it out soon.
