Jo's StoryI had a couple of cups of left over mashed potatoes so came up with this recipe. It is amazing what you can do with your left overs!
ground chia seed (or one egg beaten)
italian bread crumbs (and more for coating the pattie)
green onions, chopped small
salt and pepper to taste
oil for your hands
1Preheat your toaster oven to 400'F. Put on the convection setting.
2Prepare a small foil lined pan and spray it with oil. I used coconut oil because it doesn't go rancid at high temperatures. Set aside.
3Grind up your chia seeds in a coffee mill until powdery. Put the ground up chia seed in a small bowl and add the 2 tbsp. water. Give it a good stir until its a thick gooey mixture. Now if you don't have chia seeds just use one egg. If you use the egg beat it up until smooth.
4Put the mashed potatoes into your food processor and add the chia seed (or egg) bread crumbs and garlic powder.
5Process until smooth. Remove to a medium bowl and add the chopped green onions and salt and pepper. Give it a good mix and a taste.
6Oil your hands and make 6 small patties. Coat each with more Italian bread crumbs.
7Put the patties on your prepared pan and spray the tops with some oil.
8Bake in your prepared oven for 20-25 minutes. Check on them to make sure they are turning a nice golden colour.
9Let them cool down in the baking pan or until you are ready to eat them. They are delicate and can break easily.

I'm interested to know more about the chia seeds your talking about. That sounds interesting.
