Potato Cakes

Oh I love this blog! Now I have a use for the fourth baking potato in the pack which always gets left to go green 🙂


  • 1 cold jacket potato (cooked)
  • A handful of the cheese of your choice, grated
  • 1dsp chopped frozen spinach, defrosted and drained or some other chopped veggies (optional).
  • Herbs of your choice (optional) chives or garlic chives would be good
  • Oil


  1. Scoop out the flesh of the potato and mash 
  2. Mix with the other ingredients apart from the oil.
  3. Put some greaseproof or baking paper on a try and brush the greaseproof paper with the oil. 
  4. Form the mix into small cakes (and I mean small, think a 10p piece in diameter and about 2/3 cm thick). 
  5. Put on the tray and brush lightly with oil.
  6. Store in the fridge until ready to cook. Bake at 200 degrees C in a preheated oven for 15-20 mins
  7. Take out and allow to cool till at a safe temperature before serving.

Attempt 1: try harder.

i think my first problem was that i didn’t mash the potato properly, that & using frozen mixed veg which was perhaps a bit too big & lumpy. the result was that they fell apart. They tasted nice, but were more of a crumbly mess than a cake

Attempt 2: Yum!
This time I mashed the potato properly & chopped up the big green beans that were in the mixed veg.  I also had to substitute in cream cheese at the last minute when I discovered that someone had finished the cheddar up.   DD1 loved them, but did let me try a small one 🙂
