Dh and dd rated these at 4 1/2 *. I used my food processor to shred the washed potato, skin and all and also shredded about 1/2 small onion. I fried up a regular small pack of bacon beforehand and crumbled this into the mix (not the fat). I added 1 tspn minced garlic, not alot of salt (because the bacon was salty - make sure you taste the bacon to know), pepper and about 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. As soon as dh came home from work, he was into them as I started frying them up straight away, using the 1 cup of vegetable oil, although this doesn't have a high smoking point, I used my non stick electric frypan set between 9 and 10. Took them out of the fat when both sides were crispy, dark golden brown. I served them with sweet chilli dipping sauce and salad. Dh said they were pretty good, and considering he mowed through nearly the whole lot of them, I would say this recipe is a success. Oh yeah - I dried the potato with paper towel, three layers of towel on a flat plate, potato, then three more layers of towel, squeeze and press out juice until paper is soaked, then remove top layer and replace with dry paper, flip and do the same to the other side. Keep going, by flipping until the dry layer is on the bottom and replace the top layer until you soak up the juice.
