Monday’s Bread Bowl: Swiss Chard Patties

A veggie alternative for a healthy bite

The mix of fresh Swiss chard, breadcrumbs, and parmesan cheese makes this a healthy substitute for other appetizer or meal items. Swiss chard lends lots of green flavor and a veggie bite to each patty. Here’s our recipe:

What you will need:

1 wooden spoon
1 medium-sized bowl
1 fry pan or cast-iron skillet
Non-stick cooking spray
1 egg, beaten
1 ½ Cup Swiss chard, chopped small
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup parmesan cheese, grated
½ cup bread crumbs
Pinch of salt

Cooking and Directions:

Combine Swiss chard, breadcrumbs, egg, milk, salt, and parmesan cheese in bowl. Mush and mix well. Form mixture into 6 to 8 (2- to 3-inch diameter) patties. Heat pan on medium-high heat. Spray liberally with cooking spray. Once pan is hot, carefully place patties into pan. Let patties cook and brown on each side for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce.
