Carol Perricone


My daughter gave me this recipe and it was delicious!! She has to eat gluten free, but the whole family enjoyed these patties.
Try them, you might be surprised how good they taste. You can eat them on a bun, top them with salsa, sour cream, or guacamole. The possibilities are endless.
