If you chop the veggies very tiny (mince them) the patties stay together better. Make sure you wait until they are golden brown before you flip them also.  And tear the bread up into small pieces and mash the bones into the salmon well before you add the other ingredients.  That should hold them together!

We made a great mistake this morning and forgot eggs to make this recipe.  It actually turned out even better!  The patties had more of a crispy golden crunch to them.  So save your eggs and save some money and try these without eggs added.

Really tasty mix of ingredients! However, when I made these the cakes exploded and did not stay together. Should I add more egg or less veggies or what else whould you suggust?
