Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Lightly oil a glass dish.

Put All ingredients into the food processor and process until smooth (a few chunks are good, they will give your burger texture). So you can pulse the processor until everything folds together.

Remove and put into a bowl.

Form the mixture into desired sized burgers-this is a great recipe for sliders (or mini burgers).

Cook on 350 for 10 min or until browned on top

Serve on a soft bun with your favorite condiments!
