“This recipe makes a fair amount of patties, but you won't have to worry about that, half will be gone before they even make it to the table lol! Yield is only estimated depending on the size of your patties. One small minced yellow onion can be replaced for the green onions. see Kittencal's Seasoned Dry Italian Breadcrumbs
