These look just beautiful. I so miss my cast iron. Lost them in a move that was shipped. What a disaster that was.

Oh, my! I call these potato cakes. Love them!! Thank you for the memory. Emily

My mother used to make these all the time. Our house, we never have leftover mashed potatoes, no matter how many pounds I make!
