Ok So over in the H thread here I have gone off on a tangent and now I wonder in NSW we call it a Potato Scallop, In VIC & QLD They call them Potato Cakes. I haven't even asked anyone in the rest of the country so I am wondering..
What do you call a thick Slice of potato which is floured, dipped in batter, fried to set the batter and then re-fried at a higher temp to cook the potato and be served hot?

Though, I'm a RAAF kid so used to travelling all over hte place and know that it seems to depend where you live. Same with luncheon meat/devon/fritz/paloney. lol.
I personally just look at their menu and use whatever term they use. Same with dagwood dog/pluto pup/battered sav.
