Grilled Cheese: Gorgonzola Cheese, Caramelized Onions, and Apples

Potato Cakes (Slim)

Potato Cakes (Slim)

The ones that you can buy from the store over there have a lot more flour in them and remind me of an American pancake (except for the frying in bacon fat!) The recipe I used was out of a traditional Irish cookbook so… of course I fried them in bacon fat ~Pierce loved them (must have been the bacon fat ~ha ha!)
