My Grandma Used To Make These All The Time, Yummy!
I love all kinds of vegetables, but I know quite a few people who are not as fond of them as I am.
I have no idea why – at first I thought maybe they didn’t have that many vegetable dishes when they were growing up. Then again, I’m not sure I did, either. Growing up on a farm we obviously ate them, but vegetable was never emphasized in our diet, in any way. Even when we had veggies, there was always some kind of meat mixture into the dish.
So I never had vegetable patties at home. The first time I ever tried them was in school and I immediately fell in love! And you can imagine they weren’t the fresh type of veggie patties one makes at home – no, they were those industrially made, frozen patties and yet, I loved them. So, this recipe right here? This one totally blew my mind.
These veggie patties are outstanding! As long as you remember to squeeze any excess moisture out of the ones that are moister than others, you can make these with pretty much any grated vegetables. I love serving these with mashed potatoes – my husband’s favorite is when I fill a pitta bread with lettuce, tomatoes and yogurt dressing, and then add a couple of these patties in there!
Quick Tip: You can make these with any type of veggies – use a different mix each time!
Quickly frying them in the pan first will hold them together better, but overall baking in the oven is a healthier choice!
To Make this Recipe You’Il Need the following ingredients:
9 to 10 oz potatoes – cooked and mashed
1 garlic clove – mashed
1 small red onion – finely chopped
