"I wanted to make them more of a meatloaf consistency, so I added an egg to the mixture and made it into more oval shaped patties. I got 6 nice sized patties out of the mixture. Way too cold to grill, so I pan fried them. I served them with some mashed potatoes that I added light sour cream, a little butter, and parm cheese."
