This is a pretty simple recipe, perfect for common people who maybe don't have access to ingredients that top chefs do because of cost/location or don't have the time prepare elaborate meals. It's great for those of us cooking on a budget who want food to taste good. I like to let the mix sit at least an hour before I use it to (1) let all the flavors to mix and (2) to allow the mix to bond well so your patties don't fall apart. You could prepare this the night before if you like, but make sure to store it in an air tight container. Note that these are great made with canned salmon, mackerel, crab, sardines, chicken or whatever variation you can think up! For the sauce, I use a few packets of taco sauce from Taco Bell. Whenever I visit one I make sure to grab a handful for later use. Any other taco sauce would work, but may not taste as good. Also, if you do not have the Kraft Cracked Pepper Mayonnaise, then just forget it. The sauce truly is not the same without it.
