Potato Cakes (Michael Smith)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Lori Mama

I saw him make this recipe on his show Chef at Home (Food Network Canada). I use a non stick frying pan for this, so I'm able to fry with minimal fat. In this case I used vegetable oil instead of the bacon fat. Prep time does not include cooling time.

I totally forgot about making these until last night. Comfort food heaven.
