4. Add the potato, egg, chopped chives, grated Cheddar and a little salt and pepper - mix all the ingredients together.
 
5. Divide into ten and shape into rough balls.
 
6. Roll in the breadcrumbs and shape into a cake about 65mm x 30mm making sure they are evenly coated in breadcrumbs.
 
7. To cook shallow fry for 5-6 minutes each side and finish off in the oven for another five minutes if needed*
