This is a recipe I adapted from one my mother has made since I was little. These patties are VERY good - but keep in mind they are also very rich. As a dinner suggestion to complete your meal and to balance out the richness of the patties & gravy, try serving these with green beans and fruit salad. Enjoy!
- 1 (8 ounce) package reduced-fat cream cheese
- 1 cup breadcrumbs
- 1⁄3 cup walnuts, finely chopped
- 1 3⁄4 cups Egg Beaters egg substitute (or 7 eggs)
- 1⁄2 medium onion, minced
- 1⁄2 cup olive oil (ONLY FOR FRYING)
- 1⁄2 cup fat free sour cream
- 1⁄4 cup skim milk
- 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
- Place the cream cheese in the freezer for approximately 15 minutes, remove and cube into 1/2" chunks immediately while it is still very cold from the freezer. (This step will help to harden the cream cheese slightly so it will be easier cut.)
- In a medium to large bowl beat the eggs well, then add the cubed cream cheese, minced onions, finely chopped walnuts and bread crumbs. Mix VERY GENTLY until moistened and combined. Be careful not to break up the cream cheese chunks - they should stay in chunks in the patties.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees now so it is ready when you are done frying patties.
- Heat a small amount of oil in the bottom of a non-stick frying pan. DO NOT ADD ENTIRE 1/2 CUP OIL TO PAN! Only use enough oil to keep patties from sticking, adding more as needed - I usually start with 1 or 2 tablespoons.
- Using approximately 1/4 cup of the mixture per patty, drop into the hot oil and fry patties. Flatten patties if needed and turn over to fry other side when first side is golden to medium brown.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the sour cream and cream of mushroom soup for the gravy.
- Once the patties are fried place the patties in an oven safe casserole dish, layering with the gravy.
- Bake for 25 minutes or until patties are heated through.
- Serve immediately making sure to spoon some of the gravy over each patty.
