These were delicious and very easy. I didn't have trouble with them falling apart, and I did not use the extra egg white. However, I "mushed" the cakes together pretty tight and cooked "side 1" till they were very brown before turning with a large, thin pancake turner. I did not make the sauce. We ate them the first time with just a squeeze of lemon, and ate the leftovers with a sauce of yogurt, lemon juice and dill. I preferred it with the yogurt sauce. I would definitely make these again for a quick supper. I served it with cole slaw tossed in a vinaigrette dressing.

Convenient frozen hash browns and flaked salmon come together for a twist on this traditional Swiss favorite. We love the creamy dill sauce, but a dollop of ketchup is tasty too. Serve with: Steamed green beans tossed with sliced scallions, Dijon mustard and lemon juice.

These were good, and more filling than I thought.. it was also more potatoey than I originally thought. As far as the comments of it falling apart, yes it does, unless you cook it for the recommended time before flipping it. You have to give the eggs a chance to cook, afterall they are what holds everything together. I also used two spatulas... pick it up with one, put the other on top, flip, and slide back into the pan, not a big deal. When I was done cooking them like this, you could pick it up with your hands without it falling apart. I think next time I might add a little more.. something. I didn't think it had enough flavor. Maybe green onions and red pepper flakes?
This achieves the healthy dinner trifecta - quick, delicious, and filling! I have made them 3 times already and have not had a problem with them falling apart. I use 2 spatulas to carefully flip them - maybe that helps. I've tried them with both canned sockeye salmon and with baked, flaked frozen pink salmon, and I actually preferred the taste of the canned. Husband loves it, and my kids do too - a keeper!
I had no trouble with them falling apart.
Maybe I had more egg than other people or maybe I let them cook longer before flipping so they held together OK.
I gave them the full 5 minutes before flipping.
The sauce was super yummy!
Baked them and then finished them in the broiler after coating them with cooking spray instead of frying them in a pan. Worked well and did not fall apart.
