I made this for the 2012 Pick A Chef. I made this and I was not much of a fan of it. It is not the recipe, it is the potato pattie in general I am just not fond of them. However my mother on the other hand raved about these. She adores potato patties and hadn't had them in years and absolutely loved every bite of them. I also gave it four stars because it does not state where to put the eggs in the recipe. Other than that, if you like potato patties, you most likely will love these according to my mother.
What a great way to serve potatoes. Really loved it. Thanks.
