Fried Potato Patties

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by gailanng

A real kid pleaser. Best made with fresh potatoes, as opposed to instant, with a stiff potato consistency. I just boil a few potatoes and smash them with a fork.

These turned out great for me. I followed the recipe step by step. I sprayed my pan with Pam instead of using the vegetable oil. Cooked on low heat and they turned out so good. Thanks for the great recipe. I will be making this again.
