These Cheesy Potato Cakes are to die for! The sauce for this is killer, you definitely need to make it with the

  • Skillet



Spicy-Creamy Sauce:


  • Boil potatoes for about 20-25 minutes until soft, but still a little firm. Do not overcook. As potatoes are boiling, combine sauce ingredients. Cover and chill.
  • Drain potatoes and mash them with a potato masher (with skin ON). Coarsely mash the potatoes, you still want some small chunks in it. Add remaining potato cake ingredients and mix well.
  • Combine breadcrumbs and flour in a pie pan or large plate. In a separate bowl, combine eggs and milk. Get a good handful of the potato mixture and form it into a patty, about the size of a hamburger patty. Pat the potato mixture into the breadcrumb mixture, then dip into the milk and egg, then cover again with breadcrumbs.
  • When the patty is completely covered with lots of breadcrumbs, place on a cookie sheet or large plate. Cover and chill for about an hour.
  • Heat about 1 c. of vegetable oil in a large skillet. Pan fry the cakes on medium heat for about 2-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels then serve with the spicy-creamy sauce! Garnish with chopped green onion or chives.
