These are a nice treat from regular potatoes, and they look pretty for guests, too!

Top Review by Merry Cook

Very yummy! Easy to make and very tasty, even cold the next day. I made these with Thanksgiving dinner because I wanted to provide something with protein (egg & cheese) for my sister who doesnt eat meat. This did the trick. I left out the cayenne pepper because she doesnt like hot stuff, and added onion powder. Also, I ran out of breadcrumbs and used crushed saltine crackers, and added a cup of cheddar cheese along with the parmesan. Very delicious - thank you!
