These r good.

i'm in love! super good... just made my patties a little too thick. makes about 8-10 patties depending on thickness. peach salsa and lime sauce are excellent additions to this dish... don't skip them and just make the patties!

Just made them! One of the best dinners I've had in awhile! :)

My future son-in-law made this with my help and it was delicious. We cheated and used can peaches. Still very good. Probably using fresh , just adds an added crunch.

I love this recipe, but whenever I make it the fritters just don't stay together. Is there something I can do to make the mixture more solid?
