I was looking for a creative breakfast this morning and remembered these little tasty treats. I used to make them all the time when I lived in Victoria years ago.
1/2 onion, chopped finely
salt, pepper, parley flakes and basil to taste
1-2 tbsp canola oil
Pierce potatoes several times with a fork and cook in microwave on high for 5-7 minutes (until they are soft). Allow to cool. Grate potatoes into a small mixing bowl (peel will naturally separate, discard peel). Add onion, egg and seasonings. Mix well.
Heat oil in frying pan set over low medium heat. Form potato mix into little cakes with your hands. Fry on both sides so that each side browns nicely.
Serve with applesauce and/or sour cream.
Makes 8 potato cakes
