Potato Cakes with Ham and Cheese Filling

These may look from afar like Ecuadorian "llapingachos", but they are quite different from those. They have a cheesy feta core, which you must carefully wrap with 2 ham strips. Mix the mashed potatoes with refreshing and slightly crunchy fresh spring onion. These are a great starter or side dish.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
