Potato Cakes

Janet Scott


Throwing these together with the use of your left over mashed potatoes is great! Perfect for Breakfast or as a side at dinner.
Whats great about these is you can put any seasoning you like....even add cheese! They are a soft potato cake, not dry or pasty. If you like a firmer cake, add more flour.

How to Make Potato Cakes


  1. Prepare all ingredients
  2. Mix everything together in a medium size bowl.
    (I make my mashed potatoes with the skins on. )
  3. In a medium skillet, drizzle olive oil and one tablespoon butter
  4. Spoon drop the size of cake that you desire making sure to flatten them a little bit. They will be sticky, I flatten a little bit after turning them.
  5. Brown both sides.
    Serve with whatever you like, I just put butter on top...YUMBO!
