  1. Cook the potatoes in salted boiling water until they start to fall apart. Drain and put back in the warm pan to dry out for a few mins.

Dip the cakes in the egg white, allow the excess to drain off, then coat in the breadcrumbs, pressing to adhere well. Put on a tray lined with baking parchment, cover and chill for 15 mins or until ready to use.
