Place the patties on a parchment-lined baking sheet, pressing thumb into the center of each patty to form a small indentation.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Whole wheat bread can be used but white bread adds a lot of fat and flavor to the recipe.
    2. Raw honey contains a good source of natural sugar.
    3. People should try to buy raw honey, as it is very available and much better for the body than pasteurized honey.
