I tasted a special type of potato cakes some time ago and really wanted to make them at home, but did not know neither their name, nor the exact ingredients. Even so, I seem to have got almost the same taste in the potato cakes I made. Yeeey !
When I cooked my last batch of hash browns, I shredded and dried extra potatoes so I could use them to try out the potato cakes.
I just adapted it as I went.
1 to 2 cups shredded and patted dry potatoes
1 egg, beaten
1/3 - 1/2 teaspoon salt
3 TBSP flour
Mix all the ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside.
Heat a cast iron skillet on medium heat and pour some oil in it.
Then spoon some of the mixture and bake for 2 to 4 minutes on each side, until nicely cooked, fragrant and golden-brown.
They make a wonderful side for any meat !
Serve warm or microwave to reheat.
