Tastes GREAT! But mine fell apart. I might try again with a second egg and a little flour added. Maybe a little less salt as well, they were a tiny bit too salty for us.

Don't flip until you are certain they have browned or else they become a mess but they taste great!

My family really enjoyed this recipe. I have to confess that I had trouble frying them, but I think it was due to my inferior frying pan. I actually ended up throwing the potato mixture into a glass dish and baking it.
