My husband and were just talking about them. It's been a tradition with us for many years to make them for Christmas breakfast and we were trying to figure out if it's worth the while doing it in the electric skillet (no kitchen). It's not so much the mess of cooking, but the mess of cleaning up afterwards (in a bathtub).
You fry yours in deep oil? My mom used to make them like that. We have a different method where we use grated potato, egg, flour and seasonings. We shape them into patties and pan fry them in, you got it, bacon fat!!
They are really decadent aren't they!?!?!?
