Yummy nut patties

These little gems are a family favorite. I used to try and make them into balls, like meatballs, but because they aren't really that consistency, they would have a hard time holding together. So gone are nut balls (aren't you relieved?) and here are nut patties.

They are mostly based off An Apple A Day recipe, but largely done by feel and by memory at this point. Today we had them with mashed potatoes and gravy and a broccoli bake, and I'm surprised I got off the couch and went for a ski afterward! But I did. After a bit of a pause, I did.

Nut patties
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 t. salt
1/4 c. finely chopped onion
1/2 c. grated cheddar
1 T. chopped parsley
1 egg
1 c. bread crumbs
1 c. cottage cheese

Mix all ingredients together and from into patties. Fry in a nonstick pan (sprayed with Pam or some such spray, of course, who trusts nonstick anyway?) until brown on both sides. Serve with mushroom gravy.

And enjoy!


  1. how many servings do you think this one yields? :-)

  2. The cookbook says 4-6. I always double it, at least, and freeze the leftovers... they freeze really well!

  3. For me... this is one of the BEST things to come out of our Adventist Heritage! I would even consider going to church - if I could eat these occaisionally.

  4. thankfully you have posted the recipe for the nut patties! now i can enjoy them more often ( the last time was when i went to seattle for thanksgiving in 2002!)
