I made these as per the recipe a while ago and really liked them but as I'm now vegan, I had to change it a bit. I used some nutritional yeast flakes instead of cheese and a 'flax egg' instead of the egg. I also added some garlic powder and paprika. I found the mixture was a lot less wet this way and didn't need the flour before coating in the breadcrumbs. I enjoyed both versions of the recipe!

Really enjoyed these when I first made them. Now to make another batch for the freezer.

OK this recipe has a lot of potential but as everyone has mentioned the mixture is a nightmare to handle. I mixed this recipe with another from here and it was more tasty. 1. i added a garlic, handful of cilantro leaves and stalks, a chilli & some salsa 2. leave the potato in those small cubes and pop it back in the pan to dry fry it as someone else mentioned you mix it a couple of times it will break DO NOT WANT mash potato! 3. ive not tried this but next time i will cos this recipe needs something to thicken it up. I'd try adding some chunky breadcrumbs to the mix 4. wash and wet your hands down inbetween making each patty. 5. MAKE SURE you get enough bread crumbs on otherwise they really wont hold together. (i think the breadcrumbs inside will help here too) Hope this helps anyone

We liked these but I do think maybe there needed to be some more spices in the potato and bean mixture. I used panko crumbs but otherwise stuck to the recipe and it worked fine for me.

Hi filling got too soft so could not make burgers....put all filling in a dish....grate cheese on top and had with veggie sausages!! Perfect. You should put in the method not to let mixture get to soft so roughly mash the potatoe. Thanks for the great food!! snitha

These were very easy and cheap to make. A good grind of black pepper helped with the flavour. Served with chips and salad.

These were good and I liked baking the final burger instead of the usual shallow frying, they were very messy to make and I think next time I would double the quantity (this would use the whole can of beans too!) and freeze some. I have to say that I made ten burgers from this quantity four must have been huge burgers! I didn't have any trouble at all getting the mixture to hold together and shape, I did let the potatoes drain well before mashing.

These are really tasty! We used chickpeas instead of mixed beans, and shallots instead of spring onions as they were growing in the garden! Also added a clove of garlic. Worked really well. Messy to make but worth it. Served them with an avocado & tomato salsa. Will definitely make again.

I'm a bit surprised they rated this as an 'Easy' recipe, as the patties were quite sloppy and very hard to keep together during the forming and dredging stages. They were very tasty so I'll definitely make them again, but I think I'll dry fry the boiled potatoes after draining for a few minutes to reduce the moisture in the patties.
