Hi Sari,

I came across your blog by accident and I absolutely love it. I tried out the potato chops yesterday and follwed the recipe to the T. But while I was shallow frying them the potato broke up and split.I dont know what I did wrong as I ensured that there were no cracks in the potato covering.
