When I was little, I didn’t like to eat sloppy Joe, so my mother called them “Messy Jessies” to get me excited about them. Continue reading
Based after a recipe that Fri gave me, after getting me hooked on them. I’m pretty sure she pan fries hers a little, but I bake mine.
Out of all the oat patties I’ve made, these turned out the best so far. Just a few days after I arrived in Canada, we had a student arriving, and Fri and I invited him and the other guy (who I’ll call Li) over for breakfast the morning after his arrival, to kind of welcome him. I had made a huge pot of oatmeal, and I think I was the only one to eat it, so I used the leftover oat meal and a couple vegetable bouillon cubes to make this recipe. I don’t remember exactly how much of each ingredient that I used, so I’ll guesstimate the ingredients. As far as I know, none of my recipes have completely, 100% accurate measurements anyway, but even when I repeat them without the measurements, they usually turn out well…I also don’t remember the cook time exactly, so keep an eye on them. It’s okay if they’re a little underdone, but you don’t want them overdone.
My dear Fri made some delicious Wäxthusbullar, or “Greenhouse balls.” They’re a very different kind of meatless meatball than what I’m used to. When she offered some to me, warm and fresh, I popped one into my mouth after another. They’re delicious!
