Make thin hand sized patties. Salt and pepper the patties to taste.
Over medium high heat, fill the pan with a thin layer of oil, so the oil fully coats the pan.
Once the oil is hot, gently place the patties into the pan.
Fry the patties until golden brown in color, adding more oil as needed, or desired.
Let cool on a paper towel and serve.
