"But, I'd make it my way. Why mess with perfection. I have been making a potato cake for years but, without the lemon-pepper, Greek seasoning or garlic salt. I make it with pepperoni (cut-up) and fontina or provolone cheese. Everything else is exactly the same. It's Italian. And I don't use seasoned bread crumbs, but have wanted to try it. I just never think of it in time."
