      These were good but the flavor was a bit off for us. Just a tip, don't use too much oil or they may break apart and definitely don't miss the chilling time. I served them with a yogurt dip which went pretty well and ketchup, not so well. Made for 1~2~3 Hits March 2010 ~ It's Not Easy Being Green!!!

      I reduced this and made a few small cakes for Buddha. These are very tasty and easy to do but felt it needed some onion flavor and perhaps some cheese too as another reviewer suggested. I topped them with sour cream, but Buddha said Salsa or Guacamole would be great too. This is a delicious recipe. :)

      I love potato cakes! I ommited the cayenne because I had kids eating. I also made them into smaller cakes, I couldn't tell you how many lol but it was more then enough to serve 5 along side of Fried Fish & Zucchini With Spicy Tomato Sauce. Only thing I may have wanted to add was some grated cheese, but other then that these were a perfect addition to the meal, and tasted great dipped in tomato sauce.
