Absolutely fabulous and going into my best-of-the-best file. It's so easy and I just love the little crispy potato patties. I had to cook my potatoes a bit longer to get them tender enough to mash. Also, I think I'll peel my potatoes next time. I ended up picking out most of the skins as I was mashing. I lovedddd the shallot and garlic flavors. Yummy. Thanks!

  2. In a pan, saute the shallots in tablespoon of canola oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Coarsely mash the potatoes and garlic. Add the sauteed shallots. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat remaining oil and butter on medium in a frying pan. Add the potato mixture and fry until crispy and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Using a large spatula, flip the potatoes over and continue cooking until golden brown, another 5 minutes. Remove from heat and serve.
