These were tasty, but the pattys did not hold together very well. We ate them, but not really worth the hassle. Made for ZWT6.

I made this as directed.But after mixing everything together,I found out that I needed to add almost 1/2 cup of bread crumbs to able to make patties.Also I added more salt,also added about 3/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper.And the taste wasn't what my SO and I expected,but thank you for posting.
