Great recipe usually serve these with chicken andouille gumbo featured in same issue of taste of home. Not a big fan of soy sauce have not tried mayo. These really don't need a sauce taste good plain.

These were AMAZING! Such incredible flavor and these cakes really are excellent with the soy mayo. I have even used some of the leftover soy mayo as a spread to jazz up turkey sandwiches.
