    Yummy!! I serve them with a fresh mango salsa. But have also served them up with watermelon salsa from the All recipe's site. Yum Yum! Great brunch here in Australia Thank you for this simply easy recipe that tastes great  -  26 Sep 2011


    Excellent! My husband and I found this very tasty. As most cooks, I altered slightly. Grated the onion, added some shredded cheese. I fried my mixture in vegetable and olive oil. Enjoy  -  03 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are the bomb. I have made so many times. I adjust seasonings to my liking and heat up my electric skillet to a medium low tempature. I form the potato mixture into a big hamburger like patty- I put a dollop of butter with the oil and slow cook for like 10 minutes or so per side to get them nice and browned and nice and crispy. Before I flip them over I add on more pats of butter to the top. YUMMY!!! It's a meal within itself and are great reheated as well. I have even added in some shredded cheese for a cheesy corn potato pancake and that is still sitting on my hips..LOL!  -  22 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
