{What My Toddler's Eating} Vegetable bulgar patties

There are a couple of really important things about these patties. (1) They’re baked, not fried. If you haven’t noticed, I kind of always fry my burgers/latkes/patties so this is fairly groundbreaking. (2) When you don’t fry, you don’t have to distract your toddler from turning off the stove. I know, that sounds really safe. Also, you don’t barrel through tons of oil. (3) Patties fit really nicely in little hands, and little hands seem to like things in that category. (4) I’m okay with giving my son a bowl of rice and a spoon, but my floor looks a lot less disastrous when I give him grains as patties instead. So basically, long live the veggie bulgar patty.

Those are factors when you’re cooking for a toddler audience. If you’re making these for adults, you’ll probably want to consider other things, like exciting flavors. These patties are pretty mild, so for older eaters I’d add more salt, some pepper, cumin because I like it, and a few cloves of garlic. After that, it just depends how exciting you want to be. In the mood for something great on top? Thisthis, and this all come highly recommended.

I just made these patties and got the two thumbs up from my daughter. I made them burger size and the yield was 12. I’ll put some in the freezer so she can have some for school lunches or an easy weekday dinner. Thank you for the recipe!
