    Chef PotPie's Note:

    Digging through my recipe file I came across this one. The card is well-used, so we must have liked them, but there are no notes on the card. I probably made these when we were first married and times were tough. But I'm going to try them again soon!

      I have to say that this is exactly what I was looking for, cracker crumbs and all. I'll use onion powder, as grating them is tedious. I'll be making this tonight, in about an hour. Maybe I'll take a photo, who knows. Thanks for a simple recipe.

      Added 2 tablespoons finely minced celery with leaves. Added black pepper. Sprinkled the cooked patties with Old Bay seasoning and served w/lemon slices. Allowed the mixture to chill so that molding it into a greased ramekin to form the patties was a snap! Thanks for sharing. Very easy to make and delicious! cg ;)
