Split Pea Breakfast Pattie

These are vegan but you can add minced bacon to the base and add that smoky flavor. The key to this recipe is to make the base the day before so it has time to chill. Once cooled the mixture forms into patties easily and can be made and held in the fridge for 3 days or frozen for convenient meals.
