Definitely a dish for those who are vegetarian for ethical or religious reasons, this is not the healthiest of health foods. It is one of my (meat eating) husband's favorite dishes I make though! Also, I use eggs in mine but it could be made vegan by using an egg substitute.
Step 1: Gather ingredients
Equivalent of 1 pound ground-style burger alternative, See note below*
1 medium Onion, diced small
2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup prepared bread crumbs, plain or Italian seasoned
2 large eggs (or egg substitute)
1-2 tablespoons of water if the mixture is too dry
large mixing bowl
spatula or spoon
*This could be Gardenburger or Boca crumbles, which are available at most supermarkets, or a dehydrated-style crumble like Dixie Diners Club Beef(Not!) or Nutlettes, which are available at health food stores. TVP (textured vegetable protein) is also available in the bulk food section of some grocery stores. If you use the dehydrated variety, rehydrate per instructions.
Step 2: Preheat oven and chop onion
Dice the onion small. I like to use one of those plunger choppers but a knife works nicely too.
