Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

My recipe is similar, with added spices to your liking. I have even added tuna and dill for tuna cakes. Whenever and whatever you use for the cakes make and shape patties to desired size. Place on cookie sheet to chill for 20-30 mins. before placing in hot oil. Cakes will hold their shape much better wuthout falling apart.

Why are we adding 2 different onions?

We removed the scallions from the recipe to make this less confusing. But originally they were probably added for color and texture. Hope this helps!

These were easy peasy!! I added some garlic powder to kick it up a little and served them with sour cream..Delicious!!

I will try this soon!...It sounds delicious
