    You canmake the tofu more firm by wrapping it in a couple of layers of papertowels and nuking for 4 minutes. The paper towels absorb lots of the moisture. This is especially good if you can't find firm tofu.

    Would it be possible to fry it on the stove rather than bake it? I don't have an oven:) - 6/12/08

    absolutely you can fry it! I only bake it as it cuts down on the oil, but you can cook them any way you would a regular hamburger!

    Very Good. I used egg substitute and Mexican Queso Cheese for less cholesterol and calories. Turned out great. - 6/12/08

    great tip about tofu. going to freeze mine. --
    did olive oil, onions, mushrooms and crumbled tofu and enjoyed. forgot about garlic. don't need egg for taste, maybe as a binder. wouldn't this make a great pasta sauce? add tomato something. cheese kinda defeats the purpose. - 6/12/08
