Living in a house with Jamison mashed potatoes are often on his menu and most of the time that means left over mashed potatoes too. For a while now I’ve wanted to make some Potato Cakes. I’ve tried it in the past and never just quite got the process down. This time however they turned out great!
I decided to give the Potato Cakes a little kick and threw in some dill and cheddar. The flavors just melded so well! Topped with a little sour cream and it was the ultimate indulgence! True this is not something you would make and eat everyday, but it’s just perfect for when you want something warm and scrumptious! If you like potatoes and cheese this is the ultimate comfort food!
What You’ll Need:
2 cups of mashed potatoes
1/2 cup of unbleached all purpose flour
1 tablespoon of dill
A pinch of sea salt
1/2-3/4 a cup of shredded cheddar
Olive oil for frying
Heat a pan over medium heat until hot. Spritz with some non-stick spray and then add about a tablespoon of olive oil. Place dollops of potato mixture into the pan. When side down has browned flip the dollop over and flatten it. Cook until both sides are golden brown and place on a plate with paper towels to drain. Add more oil between batches if needed.
Serve immediately plain or a dollop of sour cream.
Notes: You could add in finely chopped onion if you liked. You could also leave out the cheese and dill.
