Pecan and Oatmeal Patties/Burgers

What you need: 

1 onion, chopped
1 tablespoon oil
2 cups dry oatmeal
1/2 cup dry whole wheat bread crumbs
1 cup pecans, chopped or ground
1 cup grated soy cheese, optional
1 teaspoon hamburger or steak seasoning or salt
1 teaspoon savory or sage
1 1/2 - 2 cups plain nondairy milk
oil, for frying

Gravy, optional:
1 onion, chopped
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
3 tablespoons oil, divided
2 tablespoons flour
2 cups cold water
1 "beef" or "chicken" bouillon cube
salt and pepper, to taste

What you do: 

1. Saute onion in oil. Combine all ingredients, except frying oil. Let sit about 5 minutes for oats to soak up milk. If mixture seems stiff, add more milk. Taste mixture and adjust salt and seasonings.
2. Heat oil in frying pan and fry mixture by large spoonfuls. It may be necessary to flatten burgers in frying pan. Fry on both sides slowly allowing oats to cook. Use in burger buns or add gravy. These may also be baked at 350 degrees F for about 25 or 30 minutes on greased pan, turning half way. I prefer them fried.
3. If making gravy, saute onion and mushrooms in 1 tablespoon oil until soft and starting to caramelize. Push to one side of pan and add 2 tablespoons oil. When melted, add flour.
4. Stir the flour and oil together until blended and starting to brown. Turn down the heat if flour mixture starts to burn. Add water and bouillon cube. Stir everything together until mixture is boiling and thickened and bouillon is dissolved. Continue boiling for at least 2 minutes until flour is cooked. Taste and add salt and/or pepper if needed.
