Patates Koftesi

I love having these potato koftas for a snack or side but then again I love anything that has potatoes anyway. These little beauties are filled with fresh herbs and feta which really makes them what they are.

2 medium white potatoes, boiled, peeled and grated
1 small onion, sliced
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 pinch black pepper
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1 egg white
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 pinch black pepper

1 egg yolk + 1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sunflower oil

1. In a 9-inch skillet add the onion with a few drops of olive oil. Then add the garlic and saute for a few minutes, but be careful not to burn the garlic.

2. Place the onion and garlic mix and the other ingredients in a large bowl. Mix them with your hands. Pour the oil into a large frying pan and heat it up. Meanwhile, take a ball of the potato mixture, and give it a long, slightly flat shape.

3. First roll it in the flour, then soak in the egg mixture. Repeat for the remaining potato mixture and fry all the pates on both sides until golden brown. Place them on the paper towel to soak up the extra oil.

Yields: 4 servings
