    UH OH!!! If you are going to eat low-carb., first rule is do NOT eat low fat. Also, there is a great OOpsie roll recipe for buns. Just cream cheese and eggs for the oopsie rolls. I think someone has posted the recipe on Spark. But you can also Google it.
    So, add mayo, bacon and full fat cheese!!! - 9/22/13

    Cost?

    It's all very well to provide recipes for which you've worked on the basics to reduce calories, sugars, salts, whatever.
    But we need to be able to afford these ingredients.

    We don't all have Farmers' or other produce Markets - especially not a FM where prices are lower than shops. - 9/22/13

    If you grill the mushrooms, they will stay dryer then baking in an oven. - 10/4/13

    I'm not a big red meat eater, so I switched out the beef for chicken that I ground from chicken breasts that I had and changed the low-fat cheddar cheese to a small amount of mozzarella. This was very delicious! - 9/21/13

    The only thing I left out was the onion (allergic) and they were delicious. - 9/21/13

    It seems that the carbs listed are higher than what they actually would be for each serving. The carbs in the veges and the small amount of carbs in the cheddar cheese in no way total up to 22.7 grams of carbs. - 9/25/13

    Ooooh I love this idea! I'm a huge mushroom fan & usually add some chopped to my burger patties but this idea is divine & good for me! Definitely picking up some Portabellos next time I'm at the grocers.

    Not sure where the complaint about cost comes in? These are really basic ingredients. - 10/4/13

  • CMFARRELL36 is right. Mushrooms were pricey! Then, I couldn't make the patties thin enough AND keep the onions and celery in. I couldn't fit all that the recipe called for, so I threw a lot of away. I ran out of patty before I finished, and ended up eating mostly mushroom. Patty was tasty though. - 1/12/14

    This recipe looks amazing, though as a life-long mushroom-hater, I would omit those and go with half a whole wheat or gluten free bun, and swap Daiya for regular cheese. I love the idea of padding meat with veggies -- less expensive and much healthier! - 10/4/13
