  1. I made this after seeing how easy it really was and it tasted amazing!!! I use 2 5oz cans instead of 3 and still I had 3 huge patties for myself. I coated them with a little parmesan cheese right before shallow frying them and that helped to hold them together. If you’re costing then with cheese I’ll reduce the salt. It was so good thank you!! I’m going to try your other recipes now :))
