The cornbread gives this a Southern flair. You can use this base to make a variety of patties. = Salmon is my favorite, but I've made them with pretty much whatever I had on hand. Great for leftover salmon or even chicken. If you don't have leftover cornbread and don't want to make it, you can use breadcrumbs, or crushed crackers. You can also omit the potatoes if you don't have any.
