Excellent! Easy to prepare and held their shape nicely, a very pleasant way to eat potatoes! I served these with a vegetarian curry and we enjoyed them very much. I only needed a few, so I have frozen the remainder, and it will be interesting to see how they turn out! Thank you wicked cook, great recipe! Made for Aus/NZ Swap#28
