  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray or add a layer of parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. In a medium bowl, add all ingredients and combine using clean hands. Use a ⅓ measuring cup to scoop up the mixture and then form into patties. Place on prepared baking sheet.
