This recipe is based on one from an excellent cookbook called "Eat the Norway," where they say of it: "These potato patties are served as an evening meal with bread and tomato sauce."
- 6 large boiled potatoes
- 2 tablespoons soft butter
- 1 large egg
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1⁄2 lb ham, in pieces
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- tomato sauce, such as chili sauce or marinara sauce (or even catsup, if you're so inclined)
- In a large bowl, mash the boiled potatoes together with the butter, then stir in the egg, flour, salt, and pepper and mix well.
- From the potato mixture form 16 thin, flat patties.
- In a food processor, whir together the ham, onion, garlic, parsley, and Dijon until filling mixture is well-chopped and incorporated.
- Spread the filling on 8 of the patties and then use remaining patties to top the filling; press the edges together well.
- In a skillet, heat the oil and butter together, then brown the patties on each side (turning only once) until golden.
- Serve them hot with tomato sauce and toast.
