The flavor is great. To make this healthier I DON'T fry in oil. I spray the pan, turn it to low-medium, cover it and cook on both sides until done. They take a long time cooking so they don't...

2 stars because for me these were very bland, next time I make them I will add my own spices and herbs, still its a decent base to start with

I have loved potato cakes since I can remember and this recipe is so easy and equally tasty. They fry up so crispy and that's just the way we like them!

Just made this recipe this morning and its great. Easy to make, easy to cook, and it tastes great. Love the garlic, really nice touch. Tastes better than in restaurants.

thank you for introducing this recipe! (i don't cook often) but i tried this, and it was easy and tastes amazing. My boyfriend and I love it!

Really, really good. I put a little too much onion in which made them a little strong, but aside from that, they were crispy and well-seasoned. I'll be making these again!
