Grated potato cakes

These grated potato cakes (similar to hash browns, but without the onion) can be deep or pan fried. They are excellent with meat, but quite delicious on their own. Children love them.

Grated potato cakes : Photo of step #8 Shape the potato cakes to the size you prefer, but do not pack them too tightly.

It is best to use a dessert ring about 8 cm (3 inches) in diameter to keep the cake neat and round.

I advise you to make all the cakes on a baking sheet and to freeze uncooked any you will not be using immediately.

Remarks

It is really important to rinse the potatoes thoroughly after grating to remove the starch which would otherwise make the cakes stick during cooking.
