4 green onions, thinly sliced

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs, slightly beaten

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon lemon & pepper seasoning

3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter

These were excellent. It kinda tasted like a Mcdonald's filet o fish sandwich with the lettuce, mayo and cheese on. I will be making these very often

Awesome! I followed the recipe exactly. I used to make salmon patties; no more. My 40+ son said, "Why didn't you make these when we were kids"
