    I have to agree with the first 2 reviews. Even tried it with Spaghetti sauce as a dipper. No flavor, really bland. Not going to make again!

    The patties fell apart and the Italian seasoning was too strong. I do a lot of Italian cooking and like spices in our food, but this was just not good, sorry to say. I have found more than 99% of TOH recipes to be just great.

    This recipe, frankly, was awful. The taste was not bad, but the texture was terrible. When cooking, the bottom burned and the middle and top never cooked at all. Will not be making this again.
