These were great. Had no problem with them falling apart. I did add 1/2 pound of raw shrimp chopped. Served them with a remoulade sauce.
I also found they fell apart easily, I froze them, put them in the skillet until brown on both sides and finished cooking them in the oven. momconsole
I used chopped up imitation "crab" for these and it worked very well. I did find, even with the eggs, that they were hard to hold together, but I managed. I just served them with a hot mustard and they were good.
