      Hi there, I might offer some other ideas. You're looking for that fresh off the grill flavor you get by outdoor barbecuing? You could try messing with the recipe and adding a binder (something with a natural fat/starch). Some ideas to bind the burgers together could be: beans, wheat germ, flax meal, breadcrumbs, or other sticky starches. The key is to have it sticky enough to where it binds together but not dry enough to wear it falls apart. If you form the burger, it should slightly stick to your fingers. And then use ample amount of oil on the outside and make sure that grill is heated up and ready to go. I always get burgers that stick when the surface is too cold and then they start to fall apart. A very hot surface will sear the edges and make it a firm barrier to flip... and if that doesn't work. They have vegetable grill platters/trays you can place on the grill that contains the food and makes it easy to flip without falling apart through the grates. And thank you for your advice on the polls. I'll make an edit! :)

      Hmmm..yes, but then, it is not truly 'grilled.' Might as well just use a frypan if that's the only option. I'll keep searching. Thanks.

      Tinfoil works great if you place it down on the grill first or wrap the veggie burgers in it first and thank you so much! :D

      Thank you for all these delightful sounding veggie burgers! As a vegetarian, I do look for alternatives to the tired old veggie patties available in the stores.

      I just wonder about grilling them, though. In the past, I've not had good luck; the veggie burgers seem to not 'hold together' well, and end up falling through the grill in pieces. There must be some trick or ingredient I'm missing.

      One thing on your poll, however. I made a selection, but it's not the only one I'd try. I suggest adding an option for "Several of these," or "all of them!" ;)
