I forgot to mention that I am challenged in the kitchen so all responsibility is mine and not that of the author of the recipe.
I put in half a cup of shredded zucchini/ mushroom instead of the carrot and the resulting mixture was a bit too sloppy to stay in patties. It ended up more like a "drunken fry up the morning after" (you know, like fried mashed potatoes) rather than perfectly formed patties, but it didn't matter. It was goddamn beautiful. I had some brown rice, spinach and cottage cheese with it. It was the tastiest meal I've had in ages - and I ate it all myself without sharing! Y U M M O. Thanks Miss K.
