    Very yummy and filling! If you are not sure what seasonings to use, I used 2 heaping tsp ranch seasoning mix, 2 tsp crushed red pepper, 2 tsp salt, and 1 tsp black pepper. My family dipped these in ranch dressing and hot sauce.
    They are also great to serve with a salad! - 11/29/08

    This entree is tasty but extra flavor is needed. I threw in several cloves of garlic, some black pepper, and an orange bell pepper. Also, I didn't want to add the oil from frying, so I cooked this on my George Foreman grill. The results weren't pretty. The patties crumbled a bit but were very yummy. - 4/13/08

    This sound like a great recipe. But wouldn't the "nutrition info" be different depending on whether you used the flax or the psyllium or breadcrumbs? And the breadcrumbs; there are great differences in the nutrition of different kinds. I will measure each ingredient and figure it out myself. - 7/31/09
