Author Notes

I could write a book on the different cutlets, sticks, & patties I've made for my son's school lunches. The reward is in seeing his face glow with happiness as he describes these in terms of the 'cool' stuff they have at their cafeteria, Adding the flaxmeal gives the nuggets a serving of healthy protein as well as helps in binding them well, so that they do not disintegrate during the process of frying.
