So I thought I’d start with an Idaho russet potato, baked of course! Add grated onion, cheese, spinach and seasonings to make little patties of goodness.

I found that if you wilt the spinach a bit, you don’t need any additional moisture. Rice the potato, add the other ingredients and press into patties.

Spray the patties lightly with vegetable oil. Bake at 375 degrees until set and golden brown (about 20 minutes). Drain on a paper towel.
