  • “I used this recipe but used Canola Oil for frying so they would be crunchy, yummmm”

  • “These patties were great…. I cooked them exactly as stated and they were wonderful….. Next time I’ll try dipping them into the sour cream as mentioned and I’d love to try these with a red bell pepper maybe as well….. Thanks so much for sharing….”

  • “Oh, these are sooooo good!I tasted the first one to make sure I was cooking them long enough.I had one with a bit of sour cream as suggested.They taste great even without it!I used a yellow pepper as that was all I had, a shallot in lieu of an onion, fresh dried sage from my herb garden and added some garlic powder.I’ve made these ahead of time and will reheat in the oven come dinner time.My only complaint is that I didn’t make more.I got a dozen patties out of this as I halved the recipe and cooked them about 5 minutes each side over a low heat.”

  • “WOW!This is the recipe I’ve been searching for.I love it….. I may add a little garlic next time.”
