These patties were really yummy! I, too, left out the sugar and added 1/4 ts or so chili powder and some garlic powder to make them a bit more flavourful, cause I felt they would have been a little too plain for our taste otherwise. But the dill as a basic flavour was just perfect.
The patties came together quite easily and I didnt have any problems handling them. I didnt even need the chill time at all, but that might have been because I used a flax egg and baked my patties in the oven at 200°C for 25 minutes turning once. They were crispy and nicely browned that way without any hassle. :)
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing such a great recipe with us, Sharon!

- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 2 tablespoons milk (or half and half, or sour cream)

Directions See How It's Made
- In a medium bowl, mix the carrots, onion, flour, corneal, egg, milk, dill, sugar, salt, baking powder and pepper. Shape the mixture into 8 patties about 1 1/2" thick. Transfer to a platter, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. This will keep up to 12 hours.
- Heat the margarine and the oil in a heavy 10" skillet until sizzling, about 1 minute. Turn heat down to medium . Brown the patties for 5-8 minutes on each side. Drain on a platter lined with paper towels, then serve immediately. You may serve this as a side dish or a light luncheon along with a mixed green salad and whole grain bread. This would also be good as a breakfast with maple syrup! Enjoy!
