"These onion patties would go really well with pinto beans and fried potatoes. I made them with pork chops, au gratin potatoes, and green beans. Out of curiosity, I added tuna to the last little bit of batter and fried them like fish cakes. These were also very good, but if I used this recipe for fish cakes, I would definitely cut down on the amount of onion (probably by half). I will use also use salmon next time."

"We plunked ours in the deep-fryer and thus, they were not flat, but they were still yummy. If you do this, we found that drops of batter a little smaller than a tablespoon worked better"
