Mashed Parmesan Potato Cakes

Raven Higheagle


Mashed Parmesan Potato Cakes have a crispy outside and fluffy, creamy inside.
Enjoy them plain or load similiar to loaded potato skins
with cheddar, bacon, green onions and ranch dressing.
I like the taste of these Parmesan Potato Cakes plain. My husband, on the other hand, always like more. He likes more seasonings, more toppings, more sauce, more bacon. I agree with the bacon part. When I’m making some that I think is just fabulous. then I have to think what would Big Daddy add to this?
Topping them like the popular potato skins makes perfect sense!
