Lentil Burgers

2 cups cooked lentils
1 cup uncooked old-fashioned oatmeal
1/2 (one-half) cup dried wheat bread crumbs or crushed crackers
1/4(one-quarter) cup whole wheat flour
1/4(one-quarter) cup chopped walnuts
2 Tablespoon finely chopped onion
2 Tablespoons chopped green pepper
1 shredded carrot
1 shredded potato, peeled
2 eggs


Combine all ingredients and stir well. Heat a griddle pan over medium heat. Lightly oil or spray. Like cooking a pancake, drop one-third cup lentil mixture onto hot pan and form into thin four-inch patties with the back of a spoon. Cook until well set and very brown, about three minutes. Carefully turn and cook other side. Place a slice of low-fat Monterey Jack cheese or Soy cheese on burger to melt, if desired. Serve on warm whole wheat burger buns with all the works. Sliced red onion, tomato slices, dill pickles, lettuce, low-fat mayonnaise, mustard and catsup is my favorite lentil burger. Yields one dozen burgers.
