These are carb-o-licious...If you are looking for low carb, or low cal...don't make these. They work well for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Furthermore, they don't even need a bun!
No bun, just a schmear of good old fashioned ketchup. If your having them for breakfast, serve with a nice tofu scramble. For lunch or dinner, try to serve with a nice green vegetable to balance out the carb-o-load. Or go crazy and serve with a nice side of Garlicky Roasted Reds (see below) and run a marathon the next day.

Ingredients (makes 4 patties)

In a mixing bowl, mix together potatoes, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper. Mix until all of the potatoes are well coated. Add in the panko, flour, flax mixture, and oil. Mix well, using your hands until a nice dough forms. Divide into 4 equal pieces and form intopatties. Preheat a generous amount of oil in a skillet and pan fry about 3-5 minutes per side until golden and crispy.
No real recipe here. You all know how to roast potatoes. For these, I cut up a bag of baby reds into bite sized chunks, spread them into a single layer on a foil lined cookie sheet, with the skins down, sprinkle with salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, parsley, and fresh minced garlic. Then I drizzle a bit of olive oil over the whole thing and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.
