I followed the recipe pretty accurately, though I did have to substitute Italian blend shredded cheese for the cheddar. I found that if you dump the 1/4 cup potato mixture on the griddle and then try to flatten, it makes a mess sticking to the spatula. I ended up pressing them first, like you would a hamburger patty. The flavor was fine, as the leftover mashed potatoes were already seasoned w/ garlic, but the texture was still mushy/soft and not crispy. Not a bad tasting dish, but not exactly potato pancakes as I know them either. A bonus however: my picky one-year old loved them!
