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?

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'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!
