These were okay, but I think the recipe needs some adjusting. I don't know if my ratio of potatoes to everything else was just off or what, but there was no keeping these together. My best attempt resulted in half the patty remaining whole. I think too that the onion would be better if it was fried before adding to the potato mixture. The flavours were good and it was nice to have potatoes for breakfast.
