    These sound fun to make. I would just find an egg substitute.

    and I just so happen to have a quart of lentils in my fridge .....

    What type of texture should I be looking for after adding the egg, breadcrumbs and seasonings, something that holds its shape like raw burger would?

    Neat! I would not have thought of these. I think I will have to call them 'patties' instead of burgers to less-upset the natives here. With the price of beef becoming downright ridiculous as of late, I think burgers-on-the-grill this summer will be a real treat for us, but it's nice to have some new substitutes besides chicken and pork. I am trying to incorporate more beans into our diet, as they're cheaper and healthier, and this will be a perfect addition!

    I do something similar to this using the pulp from my juicer. I use
    lentils or black beans, and yeah, it's more of a sandwich patty to me. I make them thin.
