Meanwhile, mix 1/2 cup of flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper in a pie plate.

Coat the patties in the flour mixture and fry them, reducing the heat to medium-low. Cook the potato cakes for 15 to 20 minutes before turning them over to cook the other side for 15 additional minutes, then serve hot./p>
