Making bergedils has become one of my specialties. So far, I’ve gotten pretty good reviews of my bergedils. Judging from the way that these things just disappear from the plates right after being served, I guess, I do make a mean bergedils.

They are otherwise known as potato cutlets, but being a carnivore, I would add minced beef in there.The influence is probably Malay-ish or even Indonesian…I’m not too sure, really. What matters is that they can be addictive as hell and always good as appetizers or as an add-on to any dishes.

Here’s how I usually make them:

  2. Try it, try it! and let me know how it turned out. It took me several attempts to master the frying bit without disintergrating the bergedils.
