Looks like another winning recipe. Cannot wait to make up and cook these burgers.

Marlene Newell

Do these freeze well, either uncooked or cooked. I live along, and would like to try these if they can be frozen as I can’t possibly eat 6 burgers.

Jaime McLeod

Marlene – They will freeze just fine. Cooked would probably be be better. Just be sure to separate them with wax paper or similar.

I am on Weight Watchers and I would like to try this. Need nutritional value info.
Sounds good.

Fawnfun – Sorry, we don’t have a nutritionist on our staff. The Weight Watchers site allows you to plug in information from a recipe, though, and will give you the nutritional information.
