NOTE: At the time that I made these my daughter was not yet two and loathed onions. Okay, at nearly four she still hates them. Anyway, if you want to add onions to this recipe, please do - I think it would be delicious. To encourage Little Miss to eat them, though, I used onion powder instead.
2 medium carrots, peeled and grated
1/2-3/4 cup chopped cabbage
1/8 cup Italian bread crumbs
2 Tbsp canola oil
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dill weed
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4-1/2 tsp onion powder
Mix all ingredients together. Heat frying pan on medium heat. When the pan is warm, drop mixture by large spoonfuls into pan. (NOTE: No oil is necessary in the pan. Adding any will just make the patties greasy. If your pan tends to stick, spray it with non-stick cooking spray before dropping the mixture in.)
Fry patties until they are golden-dark brown on one side, then flip. When both sides are golden-dark brown, remove from pan.
Yield: 6 patties
