Dandy Burger Recipe

Well I figured i should post the recipe, for ben at least (who has asked for it) and anyone else who wants to try them. Also to clear up, mike posted that my aunt sent me the recipe, it was in fact my cousin April who supplied the deliciousness.

Dandy Burger Recipe

2 cups packed - freshly opened dandelion blossoms

1 cup - crushed saltine crackers or bread crumbs (I used Whole wheat flour)

1/2 cup - onions finely diced

2 Tbsp - dijon mustard

1 flegg well beaten (flax egg... egg could be used, but do it vegan style 1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water + 15 min of standing around or so = 1 flegg)

dash - hot sauce I used Cayenne pepper here
to taste - salt and pepper

1 Tbsp - oil for frying

Trim off bitter green stems from dandelion heads. Cut into quarters. Mix
with remaining ingredients except for the oil. Shape into patties. Fry in
oil over medium heat until golden brown on both sides (approx. 4 min. per
side). Serve hot. They go well with rhubarb chutney, fruit salsa, etc.
Have fun!

I couldn't get the dandy burgers to bind together that well so i added a couple tablespoons of peanut butter and some maple syrup to take away some of the bitterness of the dandyness, this brought them to the point of somewhat cohesive patty shapes, and then i fried them. mmmm Yummers...

Yield 4 medium-sized burgers.

Sorry to post so close to mike's post, everyone who is reading this and have not read mike's post, scroll down to be pleasantly delighted!

I'm sorry to say it's too late gang. The dandies have gone to seed. Do dandelions ever show up for another round later on in the spring? Seems to me I've seen them in the Summer. No??? Here's hoping!
