  • 3 tbs snipped fresh chives
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tbs Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbs olive oil


  • Mix potato, egg, yogurt, and chives well.
  • Stir in feta.
  • Divide into 4 equal portions.
  • Heat oil in large nonstick skillet.
  • Add potato portions, forming into patties in the skillet, about 1/2″ (1.25cm) thick.
