    Now - I know there are folks that have nut allergies in the family so we're not going to be too fussy with this one.  Feel free to use a nut substitute - I know I've seen rice crispy's used, biscoff spread or cookie butter.  Even if it's a recipe with nuts in it and you just leave the nuts out (like a baked good or something) - I'm okay with that.

    Just try something new to you!

    Here's a place for you to put your T & T inspiration

    Hey Sue, looks like things are pretty slow this week. I've been on a mini vacation but had planned on making this soon anyway so whipped them up. Nuts are a favorite of mine and I had one shelf in the freezer dedicated to all my nuts & seeds.

    Very delicious, fairly easy as I threw most of the ingredients in the food processor. Very quick to fry up and pretty much gobbled up the first one even before it was time for dinner. I would definitely recommend these to anyone who is trying to cutting back on red meat.

    John/ M_Wolverine (?)(is that right) originally posted this, Chefly tried it and her daughter said they were the best veggie burger she'd had, and now it was my turn to say yum! So glad I tried these out and it will go in the keeper file.... well, as long as they reheat well.

     

    Wholesome Oaty Burgers
    (From McCann's Irish Oatmeal
     
    Ingredients
    1/2 cup McCann’s Steel Cut Oatmeal
    1/2 cup Boiling Water
    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
    1 medium Carrot, peeled and grated
    2 cups Mushrooms, chopped (used baby bellas)
    1/2 cup Breadcrumbs (used parm cheese in place of this)
     3/4 cup Chopped Mixed Nuts (mainly walnuts and hazelnuts)
    2 tablespoons Chopped Parsley (dried- 1-1/2 tsp)
    2 Eggs, lightly beaten
    1 tablespoon Light Soy Sauce (regular)
    Ground Black Pepper
    1 tablespoon Vegetable Oil

    For directions & picture you can go to this site.

    Hi Jill!  Those do look good ~ I'm not a veggie burger fan but those look good.  Lots of flavor in there.

    Not sure what I'm making for this challenge yet, I've seen a couple things that sound good to me.

    Gm Sue,

    Yikes, are there no other nut fans out there. Have you pick a recipe yet to try this week. Thanks for looking at my review, it's getting a little discouraging posting any more, plus I don't know if it's my computer or the bb but it took me almost 5 minutes to post this.

    I'm actually considering these Jill - they look like they'd be a wonderful holiday treat!

    I do understand though, everyone's so busy this time of year. Maybe one last one at the beginning of Dec. for new cookie recipes. Of course I'm not even sure I'd participate since I'm not making too many for the holidays and will probably stick to the t&t's when I do. Lol, so never mind.

    Thanks Sue!

    We can do that - how about the week after Thanksgiving?

    Hey there, lol, did you read my whole post. I guess if you think people might participate then that would be good, but don't do it just on my account, I'm not sure I'd participate since I've been trying to cut back on flour & sugar. Last year I did switch to the whole wheat white for my Christmas baking, not quite as good but still yummy! This year I still HAVE to have cashew caramel fudge, can't go without that.

    Oh, or maybe make it any holiday treats? : ^ )

    Oh, those hamburgers did re-heat decently and even warmed them up and put them on a bed of spinach & tomatoes and topped it with mustard & ketchup,,, no bun. It was delicious!

    Sue you picked a good one.  We love nuts.  I have seen that recipe a few times.  It is such an eye catcher. No need to wonder if its  good or not ! I am sure it is.

    Hey Bean,  What an interesting burger. Healthy as all get out ! Leave it to Chef !  She keeps us all in line with her healty eating. You especially!

    Thanks for sharing the Recipes.

    Have a great day.
