Just a quick one. ISOLATION Potato Cakes for dinner tonight.

Potato Cakes

  • 22 1/2 cups mashed potato , cold
  • 1 large egg or 2 small eggs
  • 1/3 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup grated melting cheese
  • 250g bacon , diced
  • 1/2 cup scallions/shallots , thinly sliced
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs OR 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 4 to 6 tbsp oil (any cooking oil)
  • Pepper


  • Mix together the Potato Cake ingredients in a bowl until just combined.
  • Spread the panko or flour out on a large plate or baking tray (to fit 6 patties).
  • Measure out 1/4 cup level amount of potato mixture OR a slightly heaped ice cream scooper (this is what I use because using the lever, it pops out easily) and drop onto panko/flour. Repeat to fill plate / baking tray (don’t crowd, difficult to handle).
  • Use an egg flip (or base of cup) to pat it down to 1.5cm/2/3″ thick patties, then flip and pat to coat the other side with panko/flour. Set aside and repeat with remaining potato mixture.
  • Heat 1/2 the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook 6 patties at a time until golden brown on each side – around 2 minutes, then flip and cook the other side.
  • Remove onto a paper towel lined baking tray. Cook remaining patties.
  • Serve hot!
