I love burgers—especially when they are served with cheese and vegetables. I also love the sauces or condiments that come on the side.

When making burgers, extenders like breadcrumbs, vegetables, or other grains are often added. Oatmeal can be used to create a slightly healthier version. Burgers made with oatmeal taste slightly less meaty and have a slightly softer texture. However, I find that it's a tasty option for those who are limiting their meat intake.

What a great idea. I will give it a shot. I am a bit skeptical on texture. I was thinking you could make the meat balls for spaghetti using this technique.

Thanks.
