My husband and I both eat Oatmeal patties on a regular basis. I’ve never changed the recipe because it has always worked. Now that I am in the process of converting to Judaism, I’m finding new ways to jazz up my food. Having grown up a non-jew, I find much of the food to be out of my taste range. Also the fact that we are vegetarian doesn’t help a lot. lol
This week I was planning my Sabbath menu, as I do each week, and wanted to do something different. I was mixing together the ingredients for my patties when it occurred to me that I could make them a little better. I’ve not tried this before so I wanted to make two patties to see how it would taste. I took my old recipe and added some Pomegranate infused Craisins. WOW! It was super good. I was so happy with the way they came out that I added it to my menu for Sabbath. Normally I make gravy for our patties, but I’m not sure I will do that this week. These are good all by themselves……
If I do make a gravy, I will try something with the Pomegranate in it. That way I still keep the wonderful flavor I’ve acquired.
Here’s what you will need (remember I cook for two so you may need to double according to your family size)
1 cup oatmeal (uncooked)
1 cup chopped pecans
3 tsp chopped onions
3 tsp chopped celery
1 tsp ground thyme
2 Tsp each cream of mushroom and cream of celery soup
A handful of craisins
s&p to taste
Mix everything together and form into patties (size is up to you) and fry until golden brown on both sides.
That’s it. Enjoy! 🙂
