      EDITED REVIEW: Just comments because I must have done something wrong...I couldn't keep the cakes to stay together. In the end, I just refridgerated the mixture in the bowl for one hour then dropped the cold mixture by spoonfuls into a hot pan I sprayed with cooking oil spray. They were hard to flip over(a small spatula will help) but eventually browned and firmed nicely. Similar in texture to salmon patties. The taste is similar to humus. Thank you for posting.

      I found the recipe very easy to follow. The taste was superb. I used corn relish instead of green tomato; either would be good. I fried them in an iron skillet. I gave some to neighbors that used hot pepper relish; they too were very complimentary of the taste. It is a very good recipe and is very close to the Black Eyed Pea Cakes served at The Stable Cafe located on The Biltmore Estate.

      These made delicious appetizers for the weekend BBQ my husband and I hosted. I let the mixture chill in the refrigerator for an hour and the mixture was easier to make patties with. I served them with homemade salsa and sour cream. Very tasty and fun. Thanks for the recipe.
