Friday Flavour: Bergedils (Potato Cutlets Asian-style)

It’s been a while since I made these delicious addictive potato cutlets.  It’s one of my specialties and I thought that for this week, I’ll bring back an old recipe I love so dear to share with the world what good food is made of.

By that, I mean not only potatoes with some meat dipped in eggs then deep-fried. It’s the entire package where everything is mashed and moulded by hand. Sealed with an everlasting love.

This time only taters were used.

Warning: (Still) Extremely addictive!
