Modified the recipe left out the carrots,relish, lemon juice and shallots and chopped up half a vidalia onion and half a bell pepper and mixed it in. Also it was sticking to my hands so I put about 8 saltine crackers in the food processor and pulse until powder then added them to the mix to form it up a bit. After I browned the cakes I then put them on a baking sheet and placed in the oven @375 for 12 minutes and they were wonderful!

should i not cook the stuffing first?

No need to cook the stuffing. Think of it as fancy bread crumbs.
