Not For Breakfast Patties

I found the following recipe on Epicurious and as you can see, it is called Breakfast Patties but I just can’t call it that.  Personally, I would not like these for breakfast.  Lunch or dinner, yes……breakfast, no.  That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t eat them for breakfast.  It is not what I want to face in the morning.  I am sure, this dish now sounds horrid, which it is not.  It is fine for lunch or dinner.  In fact, I served it for dinner.  No, not for breakfast………

With the decision to make soup, each night, I have to come up with another dish to fill up my husband.  Soup is enough for me, especially yummy soup when you take seconds and maybe even thirds.  Tonight, we had a Butternut Squash soup.  I cooked, in the morning and it was wonderful, knowing the soup would be waiting for me, after work.  I had decided, in the morning, to make some kind of a rice patty for another dish, particularly since I had leftover brown rice.  My Not for Breakfast Patties are the result.

Not for Breakfast Patties (adapted from The Great American Detox Diet

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown rice flour
  • 1 tablespoon sauce ( wheat-free tamari)
  • 1 1/2 cups warm vegetable stock or plain soy milk
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 cup finely chopped raw nuts
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice or other whole grain
  • 1 cup minced shiitake or button mushrooms
  • I had about a cup of chicken stir fry with brown rice that I added to the mixture.


1. Place a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the oil, flour, and soy sauce. Whisk well to combine.

2. Whisk in vegetable stock or soy milk and cook until thickened, continuing to whisk, about 2 minutes.

3. Remove from heat and add the oats, onion, sage, thyme, nuts, rice, and mushrooms. Stir well to combine and transfer entire contents to a medium mixing bowl. Allow to set at room temperature for 10 minutes, then refrigerate until cool enough to handle, about 20 minutes.

4. Preheat oven to 350°F.

5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

6. Remove the mixture from refrigerator, and scoop 1/4 cup of mixture into a patty. Place on the lined baking sheet, and continue to scoop mixture into patties until done.

7. Bake for 20 minutes, and serve. If freezing, wrap each patty individually in plastic wrap.
