Not bad taste but they don't hold together very well when cooking. Second time I made them I refrigerated them for an hour before frying thinking that would help, but it didn't. The sauce calls for 2 tablespoons of cayenne pepper, get the fire extingusher, way tooooo hot. I cut it down to 1 and still hot. There is another recipe (96018) that is same as this and sauce calls for 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper and they say to freeze for an hour. Will use it next time so I can have some sauce and hope the cakes stay together.

Delicious, simple recipe. I sauteed the cakes in 1/2" olive oil for 2 min on each side. Perfect! Yummy with cocktail sauce!
