Hi, CJones. You could try substituting hummus or crumbled tofu for the cottage cheese. Let us know how it turns out!
Sounds like you could just make this into a nice "meat loaf' like presentation... Might try it that way.
These were so phenomenal!!! Even the meat eaters in the family didn't miss their regular meaty buger! :). Thanks!
