      These were awful! I actually had to throw the leftovers away because my family would not eat them. The recipe would be good without the capers though. They made the cakes taste like a buttery pickle and are what ruined it for us. I’ll keep this recipe and not include the capers next time and see how it turns out.

      This was a GREAT BIG hit with my family and me!! The only problem I had was that it was so GOOEY... Maybe, I didn't have enough potatoes or something. I couldn't form patties and it kept sticking all over my hands. So I added some dried bread crumbs and it worked! Everybody just raved!!!! Thanks so much... I'll make this one again! (with bread crumbs:)

      This is just like the salmon patties that my mother made when I was a kid - and didn't like fish! I halved the recipe with no problems, peeled the potato before cooking & mashed it while still hot. Next time I will chop the veggies fairly fine. Thanx Evelyn!
