  2. Add in flax eggs (see notes), nutritional yeast and breadcrumbs and mix gently with a spoon until mixture is combined.

  3. Wet hands, and mould mixture into patty shapes. Place on a baking sheet and leave to rest in the fridge for at least 10 minutes

  4. Heat oil, until it starts to simmer and cook for 3-5 minutes per side or until a crust, has formed on each side,

  5. Serve with on top of your favourite crusty bread with which ever toppings you choose.

Recipe Notes

Flax Egg - 3 tablespoons of flax seeds/chia seeds combined with 3 tablespoons of hot water. Leave to stand until mixture is thick and gooey.

Patties have to be placed on to a baking sheet because the mushrooms will start to lose moisture. The baking sheet will soak this up.
