Potato Cakes with Rosemary and Garlic Salt
When your main-staple potato dishes become a little dull, here's a fun way to try something new. These potato cakes are fairly easy to make (especially if you have some kind of blender or food processor. I made these last night as a variation on what a friend made for me years ago. They turned out great.
Chop up 4-5 red potatoes in a blender or food processor. Add 1 tsp of rosemary, 1/2 tsp of garlic salt, a dash of milk (probably 2 tablespoons), and about 3 tablespoons of flour.
Heat up some olive oil in a frying pan, and cook them like pancakes, turning them over when they start to get a little crispy on the bottom. (I think the crispy part is the best.) Each cake may take several minutes, so it might be a good idea to try using multiple pans, or a long pancake griddle if you have one.
