      Simple but tasty and it also got flat. I just pushed the sides a bit with the spatula to keep it from becoming too flat. Thanks! Made for WZT4.

      These taste great ! However I had several problems making them, the mashed mix was very soft and difficult to work with and it was really hard work to turn them over in the pan without them breaking up. They also stuck to the pan quite a lot and because of that I ended up adding extra oil to the pan... resulting in them being a little over greasy once they were cooked and the flavour of the oil became a little too dominant. Flavour-wise I would make these again, but maybe the type of potato makes a difference? Please see my Rating Sysytem: 3 stars because the taste was good, and becuase these were so hard to work with, for me at least. Thanks!
