Potato Patties

Published Thursday, 01 March, 2012 by aidan

Leftovers? No problem!



  • Potatoes
  • Any meat/s of your choice
  • Cheddar
  • Flour and/or cornflour
  • Milk
  • Butter
  • Seasoning
  • Vegetable oil


Start by making some mashed potatoes ( left over potatoes of any kind will do )

-Chop the potatoes into 3rds, then 3rds again

-Put into a pan of boiling water until slightly soft, check this by stabbing one lightly with a knife

-Drain out the potatoes and put them into a pot. Add a small amount of milk, butter and season to taste

-Mash them to preferred consistency ( Lumpy or smooth)

While the potatoes are boiling, take your preferred meat and dice it into small pieces ( make sure the meat is already cooked ) I found thick smoked bacon worked really well for this dish

-Mix the diced meat and add it to the mash

-Add cheddar to taste ( try to use grated cheddar if possible)

-Add in a VERY small amount of flour/cornflour. Just enough to thicken it a bit

-Make the mash and meat into small thin patties

-Put a small amount of oil into the pan, just enough to cover it in a thin film

-Fry the patties for 2-3 minutes or until they have browned, flipping occasionally. ( More time might be needed depending on the thickness of the patties )

Serve with tomato sauce/relish

Total cooking time: 25-30 minutes
