So I just tried this recipe for fried potato and turnip patties and completely blew it. I followed the recipe pretty closely, but the patties didn't hold together at all. The outside burned and the inside remained uncooked. When I tried to flip them, they fell apart. What can I do to get them to hold together? More egg and flour? Higher Potato to Turnip ratio? More or less oil?
How can I fix it? They taste really good -- the parts that aren't burned -- I'd like to get them to hold together.
