COOK'S TIPS


Press down potato mixture firmly with an egg slice to help the bottom brown evenly. This will also shape the potato mixture for uniform cooking.


Flipping a large 'pancake' can be tricky, so for no fail results, invert the potatoes onto a plate. Then slide potatoes back into the pan to continue cooking.
