  3. Heat the olive oil in an ovenproof frying pan, shape the potato mixture into four patties and fry for 2-3 minutes on both sides, or until golden-brown and crisp. Place one slice of cheese over each potato patty and place into the oven to cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
