Mushroom Burgers

Ingredients - for about 6 small patties or 3 bigger ones.
3 cups of chopped mushrooms (I used white capped ones, but chestnut would be good)
1/2 cup of finely chopped onions  (echalottes are good)
4 - 6 cloves of minced garlic
2/3 cup of porridge oats
1/3 cup of grated parmesan
2/3 - 3/4 cup of fresh breadcrumbs
1 beaten egg
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 to 1 tsp. of dried basil
1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. black pepper
Sunflower/Olive oil and knob of butter for sauteeing

1. Saute the mushrooms, onion and garlic until soft.
2. Mix the mushrooms with the oats, paremesan, egg and seasonings.
3. Add the breadcrumbs until you have a mixture that is 'right' - sorry cant be more precise - but you'll know what I mean :)

Pic doesn't exactly look appetising, but burger does taste really good.
4. Shape into patties (wet or dry hands will do).
5. Melt the butter and oil together, and place the patties carefully in.  Brown on each side - turning over carefully.

Delicious served on half burger bun, bread, toast and a fried egg on top.  Yum.
