Baked in muffin pans and served with sauce on the side, these cute cakes make a fantastic light meal. You can also bake a double batch and freeze some for a quick, healthy supper later in the month. —Nikki Haddad, Germantown, Maryland

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 17, 2015

"Had excellent results. Based on other reviews re being dry, reduced bread crumbs to 1-1/4 c and added one more Tbsp. of mayo. Used 2 eggs in place of substitute and 2 T parsley for cilantro. Loved sauce but works out to only about 1 tsp. per muffin--I doubled for 4 servings."

MY REVIEW

"I make mine very similar to these with a few changes---I add a small baked potato fluffed up and if I don't have seasoned bread crumbs I add crushed Ritz crackers, small amount of lemon juice, and sauteed onions. Some of reviews said they were dry---I spray my pan with Pam and also spray the patties, bake and then flip and spray again. Everyone loves them. We enjoy eating ours with ketsup spiced with hot sauce and garlic powder."

"These were good! I added salt and pepper, and used regular onions since I didn't have green ones on hand. The red pepper added color. I also didn't use cilantro because I hate that stuff. :)"
