Swiss chard patties

Today at the New Albany Farmer’s Market we features Swiss Chard.  I have been posting a few recipes on the web sight using Swiss  chard  and thought it would be a good idea to have a “feature” item this week.  We brought lots of chard and enjoyed talking with customers on the nutritional values it provides and sharing recipes with them.

While Kenny was talking to one customer she shared with him that her mother was from Italy and her family ate chard almost everyday while growing up.  She shared this  recipe with him so we thought we would share it with you .  Kenny wants  me to fix it for him this weekend, I guess we’ll try it out.

2 cups cooked Swiss chard (chopped)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup bread crumbs
1 egg, slightly beaten
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1/4 cup  Extra Virgin Olive Oil, or as needed

Squeeze all excess water from the chard; mix thoroughly with the crumbs, cheese, egg, salt, pepper. Shape into 3″ patties about 1/2″ thick; fry in hot olive oil until golden brown on both sides.

This recipe reminds me of one I already cook for Kenny and I posted last year, Feta Zucchini Cakes.
