Lentil "Burgers" (vegan/soy free)

In a large bowl combine the following and mash together with hands (I use rubber gloves)

1 c. oatmeal
1 c. cornmeal
1 can black lentils, drained
1/2 c. spaghetti sauce

1/2 c. nutritional yeast (optional, or add in some Parmesan or shredded cheese of choice)
Additional spices of choice (salt, garlic powder, basil, oregano)

Form into patties
Lay on baking sheet rubbed with olive oil *this makes them crispy on the outside, yum!
Bake 10 min. per side at 400 degrees

Serve on buns with additional spaghetti sauce and other sandwich "fixins"  :)
