Coriander and Herb Potato Patties


Coriander and Herb Potato Patties

These potato patties are handy because they can be made up to 6 hours ahead and just fried up in a few minutes before the dinner is ready to serve.  A perfect accompaniment to steak and a great summer side (think BBQ!), these patties offer a delicious alternative to mashed potatoes. If you don't like coriander you can substitute rosemary or parsley or the herb of your choice.
