One of my favorite vegetatian entrees. This dish is a great way to use leftover lentils. This dish is easily multiplied to serve more people. Easy and idea of a great recipe.


  1. Mix together the lentils& the egg.
  2. Add enough cracker crumbs to make the mixture stick together.
  3. (The amount can vary with weather conditions.) Drop the lentil mixture by tablespoonsful into a hot skillet with just enough oil to keep the patties from sticking.
  4. Cook until the edges of the patties are brown and crispy.
  5. Serve as is.
  6. Or perhaps with egg gravy and mashed potatoes.
  7. Also makes a great sandwich.

Delicious and healthy, they only thing I changed was instead of using Saltine crackers, I ground up some Herb-flavored crackers. My husband and I made them for a church dinner and they were a hit. I give it 5 stars blessings, Linda in Mckinney,TX.

Great when you dont have a lot in the fridge! I made it with garlic and onions to give it extra flavour (though it was still slightly bland) then had it with salad - very nice, quick and easy!

I'm a student, a rower and a vegetarian - i.e. I need lots of protein and have no scales and no money. This was a cheap protein packed recipe that was easy to make, albeit it not very flavoursome. I tried it with onion and cumin but possibly underestimated the amount of cumin needed so the next time I just ate with HP sauce hehe!
