These were a hit in our family. I grate the potatoes into a salad spinner full of cold water - triple rinse to remove the potato starch and spin dry. The result is beautifully crispy potatoes.

LOVE IT!!!!!!!! One bite, and I was in heaven. Really fun and easy to make. A precaution is that when you put it on the pan, it will be very liquidy and sloppy. there will be leftover 'juice' in your bowl. Thumbs up!

Mmmmm. These were delicious. I left out the nutmeg but I added a little garlic. I also squeezed out the excess liquid from the potatoes. With the help of my food processor, this recipe was quick, easy and definitely a keeper.
