I made these for my daughter who is a vegetarian who doesn’t like mushrooms. She said they were delicious! I didn’t have any vegemite so used Worcester sauce and left out the rosemary and they still stayed together when fried.

Great to make into a meatloaf, but best with a tomato and basil sauce to keep it moist.
