POTATO CAKES Peel the potatoes and cut them into cubes. Cover potatoes with water and cook until soft. Drain. Press the potatoes through a ricer or food mill or mash with a potato masher.. Let cool. Add the eggs, flour, cheese, salt and nutmeg. Blend to form a soft dough. Shape the dough into a log about 2-3 inches in diameter. Cut the slices ¾" thick and dip them in flour. To serve, brown them on both sides in the hot oil in a saute pan.
