Fried Potato Cakes with Eggs

I like to use olive oil when frying my potato cakes, it leaves a delicious golden center with a crispy edge all the way around. Heating your pan first, then adding in the oil, keeps it from smoking up the house.

2 cups mashed potatoes
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 chopped jalapeno peppers
3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Recipe Cooking Time:
Pan Type: skillet

Potato Cakes Directions

Add the oil to a hot skillet and you're ready to cook.
In a large bowl wisk the eggs and milk together. Add in the onion and jalapeno peppers.
Stir in the mashed potatoes, cheese and flour.
The batter will remain a bit runny. Add in the salt and pepper to taste.

Pour into a heated pan and cook on medium high until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side.

Potato Cakes can be served on a bed of fresh spinach, or fry up a couple of eggs for a hearty breakfast meal.

Substitute, substitute, substitute. Recipes were made to be messed with. Use alternative ingredients to make your recipes healthier. Cook with broth (low-sodium vegetable, low-fat chicken or beef) instead of with oils. Use vinaigrettes or citrus-juice-based dressings instead of creamy ones, which are often full of saturated fat. Try olive oil, skim milk, or yogurt instead of butter or cream. Re-work dessert recipes that require heavy cream with evaporated skim milk or yogurt. For cakes and other desserts, substitute fresh-fruit puree as a topping instead of frosting. And one of my favorites: pancakes with applesauce, not maple syrup. These changes will give your favorite recipes great new flavor, and your food will be healthier!
