a real let down, I've eaten at The Chicago Diner many times and their food great, but this lacked so much taste. Wish I'd read the comments before commiting to making these.
This recipe is a disgrace to the Chicago Diner, and the "burgers" are appallingly bad - they taste like celery-infused oatmeal. In what world is slimy the equivalent of meaty? VT, you should remove this recipe before someone else wastes her time on it.
I actually loved these. Granted, I've never had the Chicago Diner's version, but they were super tasty. They were very sticky and a bit softer on the inside than I typically desire, so they require a lot of patience to flip,but I have a two-spatula method that works well. I opted to Broil mine for about six min per side rather than grill and enjoyed every last one of them. I got a solid dozen out of the recipe. I think next time tho I will try using cauliflower for half of the celery just to suit my personal tastes.
