1/4 cup flour

4 tablespoons of olive oil

Preparation

Boil the potatoes in salted water until soft (a knife should pierce easily). Then place the potatoes in a bowl and mash.

Mix the Asiago cheese with the potatoes, add the shallots, dill, lemon juice and egg. Mix well, then add salt and pepper to taste, and mix again.

Cover the mixture and place in the refrigerator (until firm), and divide into golf ball-sized balls, then lightly flatten.

Coat each burger with flour. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the pancakes until golden brown on both sides. Remove and drain on a paper towel, serve immediately.
