These did not turn out for me...they were flat and soggy. Not sure what I could have done to improve them.

While the ingredients were simple, it took me forever to make all the balls & it really did make exactly what it said. I also used a small cookie scoop. It was great. Next time I am going to add a little chopped onion too.

Why would you rate a recipe before trying it? So silly. Anyway, this recipe is actually VERY good and only uses a third of a cup of mayo. You can't even taste it. Delicious! Thank you!

Sounds good, but you lost me at mayonnaise. UGH! I wonder if I can substitute sour cream for the mayo...
