Granny's Grated Potatoes

Recipe from: Doreen Randal, Wanganui New Zealand

2 pounds potatoes, grated
4 large eggs, beaten
4 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 ¾ ounces butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 ¾ ounces butter, melted

In a large bowl, mix together the grated potatoes, eggs, parsley and garlic. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Heat about 1 ½ ounces of the butter and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large frying pan. When the foaming subsides, spread the potato mixture evenly in the pan, using a palette knife. Cook over high heat for 2 to 3 minutes, to brown the underside. Reduce the heat and cook for a further 5 to 7 minutes or until the potato mixture is firm on one side. Turn the cake over using two spatulas or palette knives. Increase the heat to high, ease a palette knife under the potato cake and add the remaining butter and olive oil. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes to brown the second side. Reduce the heat and cook for a further 5 to 7 minutes or until the potato cake is tender and set. Turn it out on to a large heated serving platter and serve immediately. If you do not serve this dish immediately, keep warm, then pour over hot, melted butter just before serving.
