INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 large organic yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 large organic red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasonings
  • 3 cloves organic garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or soy oil

  • 1/2 cup crushed Kashi® Heart to Heart® Cereal Honey Toasted Oat
  • 1/4 cup organic reduced-sodium Parmesan cheese or soy Parmesan cheese

2. Shape mixture into eight patties. Place in greased, shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350°F for 20 to 25 minutes or until heated through. Serve immediately.
