1/4 cup shredded anejo cheese, or dry feta cheese
3/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Potato Patties Recipe at
Place the potatoes in a pan with enough salted water to cover. Cook until tender but still firm. Drain, peel, and mash the potatoes, then cool slightly. Add the egg yolks, cheese, and salt, and mix well.

Form round 2 1/2-inch patties. Heat the oil in a small frying pan over medium heat and cook 2 or 3 patties at a time for about 2 minutes per side, or until golden. Drain on paper towels to remove any excess oil, and serve.

The patties can also be reheated in a slow oven or on top of the stove in a non-stick pan.
