Crispy Rosemary Potato Cakes

These potato cakes didn’t look like much, but they sure were tasty! I think I made them too big, and they just kept falling apart. I didn’t have any leftover mashed potatoes, so I just made some instant ones and used those. This was kind of messy to make, but they sure were good! I served them with some Riblets and a green salad.
