    Very Good
    My cakes didn't hold together very well, but they sure were tasty. I'll definitely make this again. I may add a few red pepper flakes next time to give them a bit of a kick! ;) - 3/7/12

    My patties wouldn't form well. They fell apart. I used egg whites, maybe that made the difference. I tried 1/4 cup of flour to make it bind better and absorb some liquid but that didn't work either. Maybe I'll have to squeeze the excess liquid out of the spinach. Any tips?? Good combo regardless. - 9/6/10
