Leave it chunky, not totally smooth. 4) Form mixture into six burger patties and freeze them for 15 minutes to set. 5) Cook each side about 4 minutes in a skillet over medium-high heat or a grill. *Serve open-face on sprouted whole grain English muffins w/ your favorite burger toppings like lettuce, tomato, red onion, mustard, ketchup.

I’m going to try these, thank you! What would be a good sauce or spread to accompany them either alone or spread in a high fiber-low carb wrap? Thanks!
