Bring water to boil in a large pot. Peel potatoes and cut into 1-inch pieces.
Put into boiling water and boil until potatoes are fully cooked. Drain, then
Heat oven to 150 degrees F. Beat potatoes on medium speed of an electric
mixer until smooth. Mix in eggs, cheese, salt and 1/2 cup of the bread crumbs.
Form 1-inch balls and then flatten the balls into rounds.
In a heavy skillet, heat the oil. Dip potato pancakes in remaining bread
crumbs and fry pancakes until brown on both sides - 1 minute on each side, then
30 seconds on the first side again.
Place fried pancakes on a paper towel on an ovenproof platter. When finished
frying potato pancakes, discard the paper and place the pancakes in the oven
until ready to serve.
