Preparation Time :
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Makes 10 patties
2 boiled potatoes
1 small red onion, chopped
2 ½ tablespoons feta cheese
1 teaspoon dill
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon rosemary
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon lemon juice
salt and freshly ground black pepper
½ teaspoon oil for shaping patties
2 tablespoons olive oil
Methods for boiling potatoes:
1. Quarter potatoes and place in a Ziploc bag with 1 tablespoon water. Place in the microwave and heat on high for 6 minutes or until potatoes are soft. Remove skin.
2. Cut the potatoes in half and boil them in their skins in lightly salted water on the stovetop until soft.
When the potatoes are soft and warm, peel the skin. Place in a bowl and mash. Chop the onions and add to the potatoes. Then, add the dill, thyme, and rosemary. Crumble the feta cheese into the potatoes and mix well. (I bought herbed feta cheese that was already crumbled. You can buy whatever flavored feta cheese from your local grocery store.)
Add the lemon juice, egg, and season with salt and pepper. Feta cheese is already salty, so taste before adding the salt.
Stir well. Take about 2 tablespoons of the mixture and shape them into patties. Dip your fingers into olive oil for convenient shaping. Round the patties into balls then flatten them slightly. Keep making patties until the potato mixture is finished.
Heat the oil in a frying pan and shallow fry the patties until golden brown on each side. Each side should take 2-3 minutes to cook.
To serve, top it off especially with a chipotle cheddar sauce or some coriander green chutney. Serve hot and enjoy!
