These would have received 5 stars, but as written the recipe lacks enough flavor for me. I double up the cumin, add some garlic, and voilla--delicious! I always let them chill a bit in the fridge and never have a problem with the patties falling apart. Do make sure your hands are wet so the mixture doesn't stick. They freeze well, too--you can bake from frozen, or thaw and pan-fry.
