1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup diced onion
1/2 cup of cream which may be replaced by 3/4 tsp of salt, 2 tbsp of powdered milk and 1/2 cup of water.
Add herbs to taste. Nell uses parsley, thyme, sage or mixed dried herbs.
Mix all ingredients. Fry mixture in a lightly oiled pan until lightly browned. Size as desired.
Drop burgers into a saucepan of 4 cups of simmering water flavoured as desired for 20 minutes.
May be used as burgers on bread or rolls. They can be served with gravy, with vegetables brushed with tomato sauce, as a dip or on skewers.
After boiling, this burger may be crushed and tomato sauce added to create a dip consistency. The fluid used to boil the burgers may be used to add moisture together with sauce, to control flavour.
These burgers freeze well either before or after boiling.
