Louisiana Mashed Eggplant Patties

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Montana Heart Song

Quick & easy. I serve with Tomato Mushroom Gravy which is posted with Baked Eggplant a La Ce Ce under my recipes. This is meatless. I serve with a salad. If you want, you may crush 3 precooked slices bacon to the mixture before forming patties. I also use Provalone cheese in place of cheddar once in awhile.

loved this!!! last week I made them exactly as recipe written. this week instead of eggplant, I used roasted pureed zucchini, squash & carrots. it was just as good!!! I'll be fixing these on a regular basis.
