3 Tbsp green onions, chopped

½ cup plain bread crumbs

1 cup Olive oil

Mash the mixture together until well mixed
.(If too loose to hold a patty shape, add flour a Tablespoon at a time)
 Scoop tablespoonful of mixture between your hands and form into a round patty
. Roll both sides of the patty in bread crumbs and aside. Continue until all are made.
 Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat with enough oil to lightly cover the bottom of the pan. Add patties and sauté 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown.
