Tried this recipe but did not use the egg for binding. Used oil,water and bicarb. Also replaced the pesto with tomatoe passata sauce instead and BBQ'd. They tasted great and very moist. My visitors loved them

No idea what went wrong but there’s no way this would make burgers so I just spread it on a tray, hoping it could be cut into square burgers once it was cooked. Nope! We ate spoonfuls instead. The taste was 'ok' and it went well with a fresh salad but I definitely won’t be trying this recipe again. I don’t have an issue with the mince - as a vegetarian (occasional vegan) for 31 years, Quorn products are a staple for me. Love them!
