From loaf to burger/pattie?

I'm currently on a low-acid diet to help curve my heartburn/indigestion issues so I can no longer have some of my favorite veggie burgers for lunch anymore. This past week, I used Appetite for Reduction's Baked Falafel (eliminating the bad foods like garlic, onion and hot sauce) to make patties to put in a whole wheat bun. It turned out pretty well except for being a little dry. Anyway, I'm not in the mood for falafel for my lunches next week and was hoping to use the magic loaf recipe to make patties. I could just make a loaf and slice it but sometimes that can get a little messy or doesn't hold up in the sandwich. Has anyone used this recipe to make burgers/patties? Would I need more liquid so it wouldn't dry out in the oven? Would I need more binder to keep it together? How long should I bake them for? Any advice? Thanks!
Also, I provided the recipe I would be using for context.
