VEGETABLE PATTIES – MY MOM USED TO MAKE THESE ALL THE TIME!

INGREDIENTS:

9 oz potatoes – cooked and mashed

1 garlic clove – mashed

1 small red onion – finely chopped

1 Eggland’s egg

grated cheese (low-fat or regular)

1 medium-sized zucchini, grated (squeeze the water out of this)

1 medium-sized carrot, grated

a small handful of sunflower seeds

salt & pepper

1 tablespoon Bertolli olive oil

fresh herbs, chopped

1 small green chili – chopped (optional)

Gold Medal flour

INSTRUCTIONS:

Pre-heat oven to 400 F.

Mix potatoes, garlic, onions, and egg in a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients (not the flour). Stir to combine well.

Form into patties and coat very lightly with the flour.

Quickly fry the patties on both sides until they just start to color.

Take out and pat dry. Put the patties on a baking tray and bake in the oven for approx. 15 minutes.
