  1. Chop the bread very fine, or break into pieces and throw in a food processor, breaking it into crumbs.
  2. Transfer to a large mixing bowl, and add the onions.
  3. Squeeze the grated apples lightly to remove excess juice, then add to the bowl, along with the bell pepper, ginger, rice, egg, and half the ground oats.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Form mixture into 1 1/2-inch thick patties.
  6. Heat oil in a large skillet, over medium heat. Coat the patties with the remaining ground oats and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, until browned slightly.
  7. Serve with hot sauce, cole slaw, or whatever else tickles your fancy.
