Excellent flavor! Because they were very wet and wouldn't hold together very well, I added 1/4 cup more fresh breadcrumbs, and patted them into 2" mini-cakes on a cornmeal covered surface. This helped hold them together. On a greased griddle, I fried them about 5 minutes until golden on each side. Thanks for a delicious recipe, Rita.

These were very delicious! My only criticism was that I had trouble keeping them together while frying--i don't know if that was my fault or not. I would highly recommend them on taste though!
