There is no flour in this recipe and you can use any ground meat including ham. This is quick and easy. White cream sauce or soup mixed with 3/4 can of milk as a gravy can be served and rice & potatoes. This is a kid pleaser with ketchup, no gravy.

- 1 lb ground beef or 1 lb ground pork or 1 lb ground turkey or 1 lb ground chicken or 1 lb ground ham
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt or 1 teaspoon salt substitute

- 2 dashes white pepper
- 1 teaspoon cilantro
- 3 green onions, sliced (optional)
- 3 tablespoons oil

- In separate bowl, whip eggs whites until stiff. Use a mixer to do this.

- Heat grill or griddle, add 1 tblsp oil.

Having celiac, I appreciated that this recipe had no flour. It reminded my family of salmon patties. I will make this recipe with tuna next and then with salmon. I think this would be great for a brunch. I also will be trying it with a tomato slice and piece of cheese on top.
I can't believe this recipe hasn't been rated yet. I've made it a couple of times when I only had a little bit of ground turkey left and really needed to stretch it out. My whole family and I love them. The kids like to make little hamburgers out of them; I just like to eat them with ketchup. I would highly recommend this recipe if, as I said, you need to stretch your ground meat a little further than normal.
