I used 1 tsp of seasoning salt for the salt/pepper to taste area. It was good will probably make again but not extraordinary. I feel like just a little something would take it up to 5 stars -- just haven't figured out what that little something is. Update: Just made it again this time adding another slice of prosciutto 1/2 tsp garlic powder 1/2 C parmesan and reduced seasoning salt to 3/4. Now we're talking 5 stars! Read More

These were good. I didn't get the potatoes as dry as I should have. A little Ranch Dressing tasted good with these. Nice. Read More

Very nice! I used 4 smaller russet potatoes rinsed in cold water and spun dry in the salad spinner. The amount of egg / flour was just right. Make sure to dry your potatoes well for a crispy finish. I used a cast iron skillet which really helps to form a nice golden brown fritter. Thanks! Read More
