  1. I’ve never looked but are there whole grain breadcrumbs at the store or do you make your own? 

    1. Mary, In most grocery stores you can now get whole wheat or whole grain bread crumbs. I can only find Panko whole wheat at Whole Foods.

    1. You can simply omit the mushrooms and have bean burgers. Any vegetable substitutions may be too watery for the burger. Enjoy!

  2. Hi! In the above comment about the bun – were you saying the calories for just the pattie was 70 calories? Thanks!

    1. The calories for the patty alone are just over 100. Add the bun and it’s about 200 calories or so, depending on the bun. I eat this burger on one slice of Ezekiel Bread, which is 80 calories per slice.
