My Last-Minute Recipe for Potato Cakes
About 3 cups of cold, mashed potatoes
1 cup of grated cheddar cheese
1/4 cup grated Swiss cheese
1 teaspoon onion powder
Tablespoon freshly chopped parsley (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat over to 375 degrees.
Place all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix thoroughly. Use your hands because I won’t tell!
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. I use an ice cream scoop to divide the mixture into even mounds directly on parchment paper.
Freshly grated Romano or Parmesan Cheese
Grate about a tablespoon of your chose cheese on top of each mound of potato. Dust with the onion and garlic. With the bottom of a glass, press down to about 1/2-inch thick.
Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes or until starting to get golden around the edges.
*These go well with a meal having a beef gravy and are a nice change from baked potatoes.
