This is a super versatile recipe and you can swap the seasoning to change the flavor completely.

Recipe Notes

You can roll the mixture into logs, wrap them in plastic wrap and put in a freezer. When you're ready to cook the patties, take them out of the freezer and let them sit on a kitchen table for 10 minutes. When you want to cook them, slice the logs with a sharp knife. Or you can make raw patties first, layer them into a baking sheet and put in a freezer.
