Preparation time 10mins
Cooking time 40mins
1 In a large mixing bowl, combine everything except for 1/2 cup bread crumbs and the oil, and knead with your hands for 5-10 minutes or until mixture is smooth, light and fluffy.
2 Moisten your hands with cold water and shape the mixture into 8 thick, round patties, then dip each in the remaining 1/2 cup of bread crumbs, thoroughly coating both sides.
3 Heat the vegetable oil in a heavy 10-12" skillet over high heat until a haze forms above it.
4 Fry the patties 4 at a time for about 5-10 minutes on each side, regulating the heat so that they brown deeply, but don't burn.
5 To make sure that they are fully cooked insert the tip of a knife into one of the patties, spreading it slightly apart, and look to see that there is no pink.
6 If it is still pink in the middle, lower the heat and cook a few minutes longer, if not serve immediately.
