"I left out the celery and capers (didn't have any), but otherwise made the recipe exactly as written. We liked these, and they're certainly diet-friendly if that's a concern for you. I baked them for the full 15 minutes; they were thoroughly cooked and the texture was good (definitely not dry**), but they didn't hold together very well when I removed them from the muffin tin ... maybe they could be baked longer, or maybe they need more egg or more bread ... I'm not exactly sure how to fix that issue, but will experiment. Also, the sauce was pretty skimpy for 4 servings so I doubled the sauce ingredients. **Those who thought the cakes were dry might have used commercially-packaged dry bread crumbs instead of the soft crumbs that are called for. If so, try cutting back the amount next time and see if that helps."
"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."
"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. :)"
"Very good recipe.I liked it and will make again."
