Press tofu: wrap tofu block in paper towels or a kitchen towel and sandwich between two plates. Set a heavy object on the top plate and set aside.
Place mushroom, garlic cloves, shallot, and onion in the food processor. Pulse until mushrooms are in very small chunks.
Place skillet on low-medium heat. Once warm, add olive oil and mushroom mixture. Cook until liquid is absorbed.
Add mushroom mixture to mixing bowl. Add worcestershire sauce, breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast, ground flaxseed, salt, and pepper. Add pressed tofu and let cool before crumbling with hands. Mix until well combined.
Use 1/2 cup and form into patties. It should make about 6. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. Flip, and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes before handling. This helps the patty from falling apart. Serve with toasted hamburger buns, lettuce, tomato, avocado, and secret sauce.
To Make Secret Sauce:
Mix mayonnaise and hot sauce together until combined. Add more mayo if too spicy or add more hot sauce for a bigger kick!
