Leftover Bread and Cheese Patties

Michael loves bread and if you fry it, well that is an easy winner. I found this recipe the other day for Leftover Bread and Cheese Patties from the Turkish food blog, Give Recipe. I decided to start my Superbowl food frenzy with these. I just finished making and serving them and they were a big hit with both Michael and me. I would love to serve them for brunch, made into larger patties, topped with a fried egg. Sounds delicious. The writer suggests not salting them since the cheese is salty but I found they need a little kosher salt on the top after frying. I also added hot sauce liberally to mine.

Thanks Zerrin for this great use of leftover bread! Zerrin’s recipe follows but the pictures are mine. (Zerrin’s pictures are much better though)
