Spinach patty mixture can be made a day ahead and refrigerated.

Patties can be baked for 30 minutes instead of pan-frying. Cook until brown.

Leftover patties are great frozen. Store cooked patties with parchment paper lined in between each patty. Place stacks of 3-4 in a quart freezer bag.Remove air from the bag for a tight seal.

Re-heat patty in a pre-heated skillet with 2-3 Tbl. coconut oil. Cover for 3 minutes per side. Turn off flame and let rest covered for a few minutes.
