Very yummy and look really cute! I halved the recipe. Instead of the chopped onions, I added a teaspoon of onion powder, they turned out great! Because of halving, I could not exactly use half an egg so I added 2 tablespoons more milk. I also omitted the oil and they turned out great! I accidentally used baking powder instead of baking soda, so they probably would've been fluffier if I had used baking soda. Overall, great flavor and very nice compliment to meat and potato meals.
