These are very easy to make and go well with anything you might throw them at, potatoes, baked yams, rice, they also make wonderful large sandwich "meats" with all your favorite trimmings! You can also serve these topped by your favorite sauce or by lots of onions and peppers!
1 loaf whole wheat crusty bread
1 cup quick oats
1 1/2 whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp. onion powder (1 tsp. of onion powder if you are not a great onion lover)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp. Italian Seasoning
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 cup water
Cut bread into pieces and put in a bowl. Pour the 1/4 cup water over it and let soak till smooth. Blend in all the rest of the ingredients. The mixture must be soft but not mushy.
Take large tablespoonfuls of the dough and drop into a hot skillet barely "painted" with olive oil, then spread the dough carefully into the shape of "steaks". Cook until golden brown on both sides.
Yield: 8 good-sized steaks
