  • Delicious Wholesome Oaty Burgers.


  • 1/2 cup McCann’s® Traditional Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and grated
  • 2 cup mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 3/4 cup chopped mixed nut
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil


  1. Pour boiling water over the McCann’s® Steel Cut Oatmeal and let it stand until all the water is absorbed. This step takes about 15-20 minutes.
  2. In a large deep pan, fry onions in the oil over a medium heat for about three minutes.
  3. Add carrot, mushrooms and oatmeal and fry for an additional five minutes, stirring and mixing occasionally.
  4. Turn off the heat and add the breadcrumbs, nuts, parsley, eggs and soy sauce. Season with pepper and mix well.
  5. When cool enough to handle, form into burgers by hand, making them about 1″ in thickness.
  6. The burgers can be prepared to this stage and refrigerated until ready to cook.
  7. Fry gently in hot oil for about five minutes on each side.
  8. Serve with relish/chutney.
