This is delicious. I can't say more. The recipe comes from Martha Day's Vegetarian flip book.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil the potatoes in their skins in lightly salted water until soft.
  2. Drain, peel the potatoes while warm, place in a bowl and mash.
  3. Add the feta cheese crumbled, the spring onions or the onion, dill, lemon juice and egg.
  4. Season with salt and pepper (not too much salt: the feta cheese is fairly salted already).
  5. Stir well.
  6. Cover the mixture and chill about 30 minutes.
  7. Divide the mixture in walnut-size balls, and flatten them slightly so they look like little thick cookies (it helps to have a bowl with water on the table to clean the hands after making several patties: they get very sticky!).
  8. Dredge with the flour.
  9. Heat some oil in a frying pan (like 3 tablespoons) and fry the patties until golden brown on each side.
  10. Keep adding little oil when needed.
  11. Drain on kitchen paper and serve warm.

Wonderful flavor! I didn't add enough dill though, next time I will use the full amount specified in the recipe, and there will be a next time! Thanks!
