3-4 grated potato
1 cup grated mild cheddar cheese
salt & pepper
Put the grated potato in a clean cloth and squeeze most of the starch out.
In a large bowl, mix the potato, cheese and egg.
Add a knob of butter and a little veg oil to a medium sized pan. Make a ball out of the mix, put in the pan and flatten to a 5mm thick round cake. Fry for 2-3 mins on one side and 1-2 on the other side, and add salt and pepper.
Serve straight away: it’s lovely with smoked salmon, crème fraiche, dill, finely chopped red onion and lemon.
