I tried to be true to the recipe, except for using turkey ham and leaving out the anise, and this mix did not work for me. Why a 4 rating? Because it was delicious and I think it was my fault. I had pulsed the broccoli and onion in the food processor (but not too fine), and I think I should have spent some time squeezing/draining them before adding to the ham. The mix was so wet I decided to fry a trial patty and ended up with ham hash. To salvage the mix I dumped in a bunch of bread crumbs and wheat bran. It was still pretty loose, but I found if I made the patties very thin and cooked over low heat so they could firm up enough to be flipped without burning I ended up with a really nice texture. I suggest not adding salt at all until you've tasted it, ham is usually very salty already, as is the cheese. When I make these again (and I will) I'll make sure to drain the veggies as a separate step. Served with a mayo/honey/mustard sauce I just winged, plain green beans and Kettle chips.
