Great basic recipe! I used these dutch yellow potatoes and they were great and then added purple onion and bacon instead of ground beef. it's fantastic! Thanks!

These needed 3 eggs instead of 1, and I added a little bit of sugar to balance out the taste. My son said it was pretty good, so I will make them again. Thank you for posting.

This is an amazing recipe. I've been looking for one with no luck since I heard of Korokke. Liking Japanese food, I found this recipe amazing (even though, of course it's not originally a Japanese food). Thank you for putting this up. I really enjoyed it, and plan to make it again. ^_^
