Egg - haven't tested these with a flax egg, but I imagine it'd work

Step 1: Cook broccoli and potatoes. Add broccoli florets and diced potatoes to a saucepan. Fill it with water, then bring to a boil and boil until potatoes are soft.
Step 2: Add ingredients to a food processor. Place broccoli, potatoes, shallots, bell pepper, and egg to your food processor and pulse until everything is combined. Then, transfer everything to a bowl and stir in the cheese, breadcrumbs, garlic powder, salt, and pepper by hand.
Step 3: Use your hands to form mixture into 6 burgers. Add oil to a large skillet, then pan-fry the burgers until they're golden brown on both sides.
FAQs and Tips
Can these burgers be made vegan?
Yep! Simply use a flax egg in place of the egg and use vegan cheddar cheese. Alternatively, you can completely omit the cheese, but it does add more flavor to these burgers, so if you're going to omit it, I recommend serving the burgers with a flavorful sauce.
How should I store these?
Store burgers in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. To freeze: wait for burgers to cool, then place them in a plastic bag in the freezer for up to 2 months.

Hi! Just found this recipe. I used half sweet potato and half russet plus fresh garlic. Roasted veggies in oven before processing. Grilled on a George Forman type grill. Delicious, easy and hubby-the-meat-eater liked it! Thanks!

Hi I just found your recipe and was wondering if the burgers are firm when finished cooking
Yes they are! I'm actually re-making them right now and going to add a few minor adjustments to the recipe if you want to wait to make them... new recipe should be up tomorrow!

Super intrigued by this TV show- what kind of research do they do and why isn't that available to the general public when picking a date!?!? Haha! Love these burgers - I recently made Alexis' broccoli chickpea burgers and couldn't get enough broccoli in me, so these are up next!
HAHA right? It's research with like a psychologist and sociologist and so forth... Let me know if you make these burgs!

I've never seen Married at First Sight, but now I'm intrigued! If I had to guess, I'd say 0% of them make it haha, but you never know!
I would guess the same thing, but I'm still curious to find out!
