This is a great "make today and freeze for later" meal. I personally cook them prior to freezing, giving me a quick no-cook dinner option. Great when you need something fast. You could also make the patties and freeze them raw. Just remember to wrap them in parchment paper prior to freezing, so they are easy to separate.
I ran the recipe through my nutrition app. 166 calories per 4oz patty. It's a great recipe for women who are trying to lose weight postpartum. Enjoy ladies!
