Crispy on the outside, tasty on the inside. Try them with coleslaw and REAL (LOL) german potato salad.

Fantastic! I made this for the first time tonight, and everyone liked it. In fact, my father-in-law said it was "Real Good". An enormous compliment. The only thing I did different was add about 3/4 cup of cracker crumbs to the mix before making patties because I was having trouble getting them formed right. We served with cole slaw and scalloped potatoes.Thanks for the great recipe.
