Homemade Spinach Patties
This blog post is for my cousin Michelle.  She SWEARS that these patties cannot be made outside of my kitchen.  The recipe is simple, easy and delicious, yet Michelle, somehow cannot figure it out.

This step by step tutorial is for my dear Michelle as proof that yes- these patties can be created outside of my own kitchen!

Also - these are a great holiday treat for your vegetarian friends!

Spinach Patties - about 8
1 - 10 oz box frozen shopped spinach (thawed-water squeezed out)
1 - 8 oz container cottage cheese (any style)
1 small onion chopped
2 eggs
1/2 cup bread crumbs (or oatmeal)
1 Tablespoon Mayo
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
dash hot sauce
optional - 1 teaspoon chopped garlic (I don't make mine with garlic but some people like it that way)

Oil for frying

Wrap the spinach in a clean dish towel and squeeze it until it's dry.  A LOT of water will come out of frozen spinach!

Next combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl.  Allow the mixture to sit for a few minutes.  This allow the breadcrumbs to absorb the eggs so that that they don't fall apart.

Mix everything in a bowl
Add enough oil to cover the bottom of a skillet.  Heat the oil until it is hot but not smoking.  Scoop the spinach mixture into in skillet.  (I use an ice cream scoop).  Use a fork to spread the patties flat.

Cook the patties over medium heat until they are brown on one side and the onions are translucent (about 8 minutes).

Yummy Brown

Turn the patties over and cook the other side until it is brown.  The second side won't take as long to cook.  Make sure they are golden brown.  Remove the patties from the skillet and allow them to cool on a paper towel.  They will be VERY hot.

Ready to eat!
 Serve hot, cold or at room temperature.  I love these as a midnight snack!!
