Leftover ham at Easter or Christmas? This is a fantastic breakfast, rich and warm and great with black coffee.
This was excellent. It can be adapted to use other vegetables such as grated carrot or spinach. The cakes can be frozen and taken to work for a quick lunch, heating them up in a microwave. - 16 Nov 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I did not have many of the ingredients, but this got me going with the ham. While I loved the way mine turned out (5 stars), the kids did not. My version: Ham, fresh zuchini, fresh celery, a little swiss cut up and parmesan. I did not have onion or anise. But this seems to be a very versital recipe once you have the basics. So for me Great! - 04 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Wow, way too much anise seed! The flavor of anise overwhelmed everything else, which is unfortunate when these are supposed to be HAM cakes. On the plus side, they cook up nice and crispy, and are not difficult to make. I would suggest chopping the broccoli fairly fine so the cakes hold together better. The recipe has possibilities, but the anise seed has to be removed from front and center. - 23 Apr 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
