There are potato cakes and then there are hash brown cakes. Hash brown cakes are made with grated, uncooked potatoes, where as potato cakes are made with mashed potatoes. My preference – hash brown cakes – any day of the week. The Hash Brown Cakes that I’m dishing up today have it all. They have andouille sausage, some diced vegetables, Pecorino Romano, and last, but not least, a very special red chile flake all the way from Turkey. Serve these cakes with a vegetable side, some pinto beans or top with a fried egg for a complete meal. See the Kitchen Notes for more side suggestions.
