I have made this several times now, and I think I have it down pretty well. I can use either one egg or a little mayo to bind the ground beef together with a little parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, a dash of cayenne pepper, some butter cracker crumbs, salt, and ground black pepper. I premake the patties the night before and refrigerate overnight, it seems to meld everything together better and keeps the patties from breaking apart. I use butter crackers for the coating seasoned with the same seasonings as in the patties. I coat the patties directly in the cracker crumbs, turning several times to ensure a good coating, and pressing the crumbs into the patty, then I fry in hot oil in my electric skillet for about 5-7 minutes each side. You have to make sure that both sides are cooked thoroughly, even a little dark, or the coating falls off or turns soggy. I place a sheet of foil over a large cookie sheet and place a cookie cooling rack over the foil, set my oven to 200, and when a patty comes out of the skillet, I place it directly onto the cooling rack and keep in the oven until dinner is ready, and the patties lose the greasy exterior and stay crunchy and warm. Husband didn't like this recipe and wouldn't hardly eat any of it when I first started making it, now he likes it and eats it all!
