Did You Know...
Native to North America, wild rice is really not a rice but rather the grainlike seed of an aquatic grass. One cup of uncooked wild rice will give you about 4 cups cooked.
Health Twist
Concerned about cholesterol? Use 1/2 cup of a fat-free egg product instead of the eggs for cholesterol-free patties.
Planned-Overs
Leftover patties get a makeover when you serve them in sandwich buns with cranberry sauce.
