This CRISPY FRIED POTATOES CAKES recipe won Nancy(Ma) her FIRST BLUE RIBBON. After having them for dinner today, both my husband and I can understand why. I had to double the recipe because my husband cannot get enough of potatoes. The freshly shredded potatoes added to the mashed certainly does add texture. I served them with sour cream, apple sauce and Heinz Catsup, the only one to use in my opinion. This recipe is soooo good. It will certainly become a FAMILY FAVORITE after today. They turned out a nice golden brown and the accompaniments went well with them. We LOVED THEM & YOU WILL TOO.
