Drain the boiled potatoes, add the peas, cheese and egg. Use a masher to break down the lumps until the mixture clumps together nicely. Season well.
With floured hands, form into 4 patties and lightly coat with some more flour. Allow to rest for 15 minutes in the fridge.
Heat the oil and butter until it bubbles, add the patties. Fry over moderate heat for +- 6 minutes a side. Should be crispy on the outside and soft in the centre.

Serve with a smoked salmon and apple salad dressed with extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice.
