Lemon-Pepper Pork Patties

I was looking for a quick dinner tonight using a pound of ground pork I had thawed.  I just mixed a few things up into this meat, formed patties and seared them off until done.  Man, oh, man, were they ever tasty!  Hubby really liked them, too!  I picked the right two spices for these for sure!  This recipe just made my go-to, quick and easy dish list!!  They went together in about 5 minutes flat and cooked in about 20 minutes.  They cooked so quickly, I found myself waiting on the squash and cauliflower to get done!!  The first spice I used for this recipe is my Dad’s recipe for poultry seasoning posted here on my site.The other is a spice I bought at Marshall’s for half price that I’ve REALLY grown to like a lot!  It’s called No Salt Lemon Pepper, made by Victoria Gourmet.   Not like any other lemon pepper mix I’ve ever tried before.  It’s more like Mrs. Dash (No Salt) than a lemon pepper, really.  It is a blend of onion, garlic, lemon peel, red bell pepper, turmeric, some proprietary spices, and lemon oil.  I catch myself grabbing it often and haven’t put it on a thing I didn’t LOVE it on!!  It’s delicious on baked meats, fish, poultry and even enhances BBQ sauce!  They have a website if you want to check out their complete line of spices.  http://www.vgourmet.com/Seasoning-Blends/c/VictoriaGourmet@SeasoningBlends.    There is a wee bit of demarara sugar in their lemon pepper blend, much to my dismay, but clearly < .5 g since the label reads “zero” carbs.    This delicious meat recipe is suitable for the Atkins Induction phase.
