Replace sunflower seeds with same amount of walnuts. Replace basil with 1 1/2 t poultry seasoning.

Either place on an oiled baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes each side OR Pour a bit of olive (or other) oil into a frying pan and fry each side till golden.

You can eat both the Sunflower Burgers and Wanut Patties baked or raw as a filling in celery sticks, as a dip with cucumbers, or as a spread with lettuce wraps, topped with cucumbers. If you add an egg they will hold together better.
