Green Card Member, Marie Ould, shared this recipe with us as her quick and easy 5 minute meal by food journalist and author, Mark Bittman. Beefless Cheeseburger -2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
-1 cup chopped parsley
-1 cup bread crumbs, preferably fresh
-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
-Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1. Combine the cheese, parsley, and bread crumbs in a medium bowl. Add the eggs and use a fork to gently beat the eggs and blend everyting into a semi solid mixture. The "dough" should be about the consistency of dumpling or biscuit dough. Carefully shape the mixture into patties and set them on a plate or wax paper.
2. Put the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot but not smoking, add the patties (it is okay to crowd them a bit). Cook without disturbing until they start to look crisp around the edges, about 5 minutes Then carefuly flip and cook the other side for 3 to 5 minutes. Drain briefly on paper towels. Sprinkle lightly with salt and heavily with pepper and serve on hamburger buns or bread.
