What can you do with leftover mash i hear you say? What about little potato cakes which are crunchy on the outside and soft and flavorsome in the middle. These little gems are simple and delicious. You can add anything into them and that means anything leftover you need to use in your fridge. What about last nights roast chicken and veggies or even the lasagna you cooked up for lunch but have some left over. Create and be playful in the kitchen and enjoy it!
3 Cups cold mash
2/3 Cup Grated cheese ( i used parmesan and feta as its what i had)
2 Tablespoons spring onion (optional)
1 egg beaten
8 slices Ham, diced
3 Tablespoons flour, plus 1/2 Cup Flour
vegetable oil for shallow frying
In a large bowl stir together mash, cheese, spring onions, egg, ham and 3 Tablespoons flour. Divide mixture into 12 patties. Place remaining flour into a shallow dish, coat each patty in flour.
Heat oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Fry the pancakes in batches until golden brown and crispy. Transfer to a paper towel lined dish and serve immediately.
