  • 1 c boiling water

  • 1 c Ritz cracker crumbs (or use any buttery crackers)
  • 2 Tbsp whole wheat or all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper

Directions:

  1. In a medium boil, soak TVP in the boiling water and broth mix for 10 minutes.

  3. Use clean hands to blend thoroughly.
  4. Divide mixture into 8 equal portions and form each into a 4 or 5-inch burger shape.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  6. Lightly oil a skillet or griddle. Brown the burgers a few minutes, turn and brown the other side, adding a bit more oil if needed.
