4 large potatoes
50 g butter
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Wash, peel and grate the potatoes. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible from the grated potatoes then discard the liquid.
Put the potatoes into a large mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste and stir until well combined.
Heat one-third of the butter with 1 tablespoon oil in a nonstick frying saucepan over medium heat until it starts to foam. Take1/3 cupful f the grated potatoes and put into the frying pan. Flatten out with a wooden spoon.
Cook for 5 minutes on each side or until it turns golden. Transfer mixture to a baking tray and keep warm in a preheated oven at 120 degrees C.
Repeat the process with the remaining mixture, adding butter and oil as required.
Note: Use Sebago potatoes for the best results.
