Delicious potato cakes! Made these for a light lunch today and served with a side salad. I'm saving the rest of them in the fridge to serve as a side dish with tonight's dinner. Easy to make and lots of flavor; especially if you love blue cheese as we do. I used panko bread crumbs to make them as we like the texture better than fine bread crumbs. Next time, I might find a way to bake them in the oven. Made for Everyday is a Holiday, January, 2014.
